The provision of transport in low-density and depopulating areas is an important challenge for European and national policymakers. While economic logic implies that transport projects should be focused on connecting the most advanced and inhabited areas, low-density and depopulating regions are at risk of being overlooked. It may be challenging to reconcile equity and efficiency when deciding on what transport projects to carry out or to support via EU funds.
