The topological theory of OSp(2|1;R) flat gauge connections is shown to be equivalent to two-dimensional supergravity. By choosing a particular gauge fixing of the SL(2;R) (OSp(2|1;R) invariance we make contact with the Liouville theory approach to two-dimensional gravity (supergravity). We discuss the scaling and multriritical behavior of two-dimensional supergravity.
