Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper examines the role of indigenous transport as a potential component of the transport system in the drive towards climate change adaptation, to complement mitigation, especially in developing countries in Asia. The rampant presence of indigenous transport in Asian city streets, either formally or informally, reflects the demand for the mode as well as its important role in the overall transport system. It becomes imperative to understand their role, function and the use of indigenous transport modes within the whole transport network, specifically in the public transport realm, to be able to draw an overall portrait of the potential of indigenous modes to supplement, complement or compete within the transport system. At the same time, the paper hopes to contribute policy-relevant insights to better understand the role of indigenous transport in climate change adaptation
