Abstract

The goal of this project is "to provide guidance for policy makers by establishing a complete picture of market access related issues and the options available, with special emphasis on institutional issues." There is general recognition of the role that improved market access can play in enhancing rural development and poverty reduction, though there is limited information on the extent and nature of the problem and of options for developing appropriate mechanisms to enable rural communities to take advantage of market opportunities. The focus of the project is on remote communities in sub-Saharan Africa, though experiences from around the world will be drawn upon to deepen understanding and provide approaches to overcoming constraints. This first activity of the project aims to identify the key issues and experiences relating to community access to market opportunities by way of literature review. A draft of the report was produced in August 1998 as the first project output. The current version incorporates comments received on the draft plus some additional references obtained prior and during project work in Malawi, Mali, and Uganda.
