By improving transport and infrastructure, those without the means to previously do so are able to access markets where they can buy or sell goods for income, make better use of essential services such as health and education and keep abreast of social, economic and political developments happening in their country. We focus on Intermediate Means of Transport (IMTs) – transport devices that come between walking and conventional motor vehicles and help people to move loads or use animals more effectively for load carrying. These technologies include cycle trailers, improved bicycles for load carrying, ox and donkey carts, handcarts, wheelbarrows, improved panniers for animals and other types of animal carts.
