The exponential increase in Karachi’s population, the change in its demographic indicators, the spatial spread of housing and the geographical concentration of livelihoods opportunities mean increasing transport pressures.

This paper is a series of case studies of stakeholder perspectives on Karachi’s transport problems, available online only and linked to the Working Paper ‘Responding to the transport crisis in Karachi’, by Arif Hasan and Mansoor Raza available online at http://pubs.iied.org/10733IIED.html.
