HVT’s Research Knowledge Exchange Event
December 1, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm CET
About the event
The High Volume Transport Applied Research (HVT) hosted on Wednesday 1st December, a Research Knowledge Exchange event to explore the evidence base for how transport in low- and middle-income countries responded to the challenges of COVID-19.
What can we learn from how transport systems responded to the last 18 months? How do we build more resilient transport for the future? How do we keep people and economies moving whatever the challenges? The findings from all 20 projects funded by HVT were presented by HVT Team Leader, Dr. Bernard Obika and have also been grouped into a compendium that can be downloaded here.
The International Road Federation was pleased to support this event. IRF Director General, Susanna Zammataro joined the panel of speakers to present the Global Transport Knowledge Portal (gTKP) hosting a comprehensive COVID-19 knowledge hub and other relevant research resources including from the ReCAP programme. Ms. Zammataro first walked attendees through the Global Transport Knowledge Portal – a much-needed online platform providing fast-track, easy access for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to up-to-date learning resources and good practices on COVID-19 impacts and responses. The portal, one of the 20 projects funded by HVT, functions as a free online library and as a gateway to other relevant knowledge repositories and resources.
