This study, conducted by the SITRASS network on behalf of the World Bank, is aimed at assessing in detail the conditions applicable to mobility and access to urban services by the poor of Douala, so as to provide background for the identification of targeted programs of action. The study is based on fieldwork conducted in the fall of 2003, in tandem with the efforts carried out in Conakry : discussions with poor city dwellers and household surveys on daily mobility, focused on the poorest households (see inset on methodology). This summary assessment sets forth the main findings of the study and the proposed lines of action.
