Evidence on Demand was requested to support DFID in work on what the post MDG framework might look like. This brief report was prepared to consider the data availability and measurability of indicators for a proposed target to halve the number of people without ready access to rural transport services, and the cost of achieving such a target. The report concluded that the target will be met through a combination of improved transport services and investment in rural roads.
