Annual Review


Following the signing of bi-lateral agreement between the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the Department for International Development (DFID) in 2015, the Rural Access Programme Phase 3 (RAP 3) Extension is being implemented in 14 districts1 of Nepal. Following the introduction of a Federal Government set up and local elections in 2017, one of the important start-up activities of RAP 3 extension was to introduce itself among its municipal stakeholders in project DCCs. This was carried out through Engagement Workshops (EW) in all RAP 3 DCCs. The purpose of this event, besides introducing RAP 3 to municipal stakeholders, was to get important information and feedback from the municipal stakeholders on the key issues/problems that may be hindering the project implementation process, specifically related to Local Road Networks (LRN), which is one of the major thematic components of RAP 3.
