This review seeks to inform policy on rural access provision in general, and in particular on supporting sustainable technologies for low-volume rural roads (LVRR) in low-income countries.
DFID’s new Rural Roads and Transport Services Research Programme (comprising phase 2 of the Africa Community Access Project (AFCAP2) and a new Asia Community Access Project (ASCAP)) will commission research projects which are associated with the development and use of rural road technologies in low- and low-middle-income countries. An assessment of evidence concerning technologies which have already been proven to be sustainable in such countries will be important in helping to identify suitable projects for DFID to support under the new research initiative. It will also help identify technologies which have not been successful and will therefore provide a basis for future policy.
