The Rural Access Library is a repository of rural roads and transport services evidence, containing outputs from the current ReCAP programme and previous programmes. The Enhancing the sustainability of the ReCAP Rural Access Library project aims to bring the repository up to international standards and to have all relevant information available for ReCAP to engage in negotiations with a potential future host of the Rural Access Library, hence paving the way for long-term quality, sustainability and transferability of the repository. This Phase 1 Final report outlines the activities undertaken by We Are Potential Limited during Phase 1. It provides a summary of the review that was conducted, the results that were found, and the recommendations that are made for possible implementation in Phase 2. The areas covered were the meta data, repository content, policies and cross repository harvesting. The project equally looks into future hosting of the repository beyond the end of the ReCAP programme.
