Independent Verification of RAP: Round 1: Local Roads Network and Maintenance 2018

This report presents findings from the first round of verification in 2018 of RAP reported results. The verification exercise was undertaken by RAP’s independent MEL component. It was conducted between March and April of 2018. This round of verification focused on the one DLI that relates to RAP’s reported results for road works. This DLI for road works has two sub-indicators for new construction and maintenance road works respectively. The verification focused on LRN road length under construction in the district of Mugu, and LRN road length under maintenance in the districts of Achham, Doti and Jumla. Greater emphasis was placed on the maintenance work for this round due to the transition of handing over maintenance work from RAP to the Government of Nepal.
