The aim of this short one-year project was to contribute towards improved understanding and resolution of child mobility and access problems (which have far-reaching implications for education, health, gender equity and livelihoods) and to directly impact on policy formulation. The principal objective was to develop a participatory child-centred field methodology/tool kit specifically focused on investigating children's transport/mobility/access issues. This was to be tested in sample locations in three countries (Ghana, India, South Africa) and the results disseminated to policy-makers and practitioners. This final report outlines the project's background and objectives, methodology, findings, dissemination of results and the appendices which include the methodology/toolkit (which covers the methodological detail of the research), and a highlights summary.
