This mapping approach aims to make the marginalized and poor visible by identifying areas with difficult biophysical and socio-economic conditions.
This study examines the relationship between transport infrastructure and agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa using new data obtained from geographic information systems (GIS).

We identify a set of development priorities for agriculture that cut across West Africa, at both the country and the regional level, to achieve economy-wide growth goals in the region.
This study adopts a cross-sectional spatial approach to examine the impact of transport infrastructure on agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa using new data obtained from geographic information systems (GIS).
