As Ghana becomes increasingly urbanized, regional disparities tend to grow

Transport policies hardly managed to reduce accessibility disparities in Ghana.

In a new working paper published this week with Dr. Paul Nugent and Ms. Susanna Goewey, we show that accessibility gains are particularly important in the southwestern part of Ghana. By comparison, northern region have experienced slower growth in accessibility than the national average.

A summary of the paper is available on my lab website.
