This report details the process and results of a study carried out in Vietnam and Malawi over the period 2000 to 2002 to investigate the feasibility of utilising the field accessibility assessment method described in the report \"Local Level Planning and Investment Prioritisation\" of 1999.
Investigating the applicability of the method involves answering two basic questions:
(a) Is the method effective in providing useful, objective, consistent, robust figures for use in local level planning?
(b) Is the method efficient in terms of effort put in to extract the figures against usefulness of the figures achieved? This includes an assessment of whether the resources required to complete the method are available at the local level in the countries studied.
In the report these two basic questions have been expanded to the investigation of 10 detailed points of reference (10 questions). Answering these ten details allows a conclusion to be reached about the two basic factors of applicability.
