ReCAP stands for Research for Community Access Partnership and it brings together current and formerly UK aid funded research programmes in rural roads and transport services. The aim of the partnership is to improve accessibility of the rural poor in Africa and Asia to economic opportunities and social facilities through improvements to infrastructure and transport. The partnership is managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) and runs from 2014 till 2020.
The immediate focus of the partnership is on strengthening the evidence base on more cost effective and reliable low volume road and transport services approaches, thereby influencing policy and practice. ReCAP focuses its activities on Africa and Asia, through the Africa (AfCAP) and Asia (AsCAP) Community Access Partnerships respectively, and builds on previous UK aid-funded research programmes.
