The AfCAP project on the Evaluation of cost-beneficial improvements of First Mile access is concerned with research into measures for improvement of ‘First Mile’ access and the transport services associated with transferring harvest produce on the initial stages of movement from the farm to established road access. This policy brief summarises the key findings of the project and provides policy recommendations based on the outcomes.
This work is part of the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
