Travelling together: improving the access of people with disability to road infrastructure in Papua New Guinea

27 March 2013

Summary

This paper discusses the situation of people with disability in Papua New Guinea in relation to access to road infrastructure and road safety.

Description

Despite the fact that an estimated 10 to 15 per cent of the population, or 520,000 people, are living with a disability in PNG, people with disability are often excluded from community development activities. This paper discusses the situation of people with disability in Papua New Guinea in relation to access to road infrastructure and road safety. It presents key findings from a participatory research project into this issue, and makes policy recommendations for donors and implementing agencies.
