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.
