Transport support for elders and handicapped in the Nordic rural regions

This project aims to analyse transport challenges and possibilities for the less mobile part of the population in the rural areas of the Nordic Region, elders and handicapped in particular.

The scoping analysis will focus on the following questions:

  • What is the legislation and support programs in place in the Nordic countries regarding mobility?
  • What changes are ongoing or planned and which administrative levels are responsible for securing this part of population equal rights to mobility?
  • How does this correspond with the Nordic Co-operation Handlingsplan för nordiskt samarbete om funktionshinder 2018-22?

The project serves as an input into a larger project launched in 2019 titled Regional disparities and the geography of services within the Nordic countries which is a part of the Nordic Thematic Group for Sustainable Rural Development.
