Getting there: a new global map to assess inequality in accessibility

Access to food, water, education, health services and employment opportunities are all related to people's well-being and their ability to contribute to society. New research, published in Nature, by a collaboration between the University of Oxford, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, Google, Vizzuality, the University of Washington, the University of Queensland, Imperial College and the University of Twente has generated a detailed and up to date global map of accessibility to highlight development gaps between urban and rural populations.
