Progress Reports

Process Monitoring Briefing Note 1

This note summarises Process Monitoring Reports conducted by the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) component of DFID-Nepal’s Rural Access Programme 3 (RAP3). The summary looks at beneficiaries of RAP’s socioeconomic development (SED) activities in the core districts of Kalikot, Accham, Bajura, Humla, Dailkeh and Jumla. A particular area of focus was analysing how poor and disadvantaged group (DAG) members were impacted by the SED activities and the associated constraints. This exercise was conducted during the implementation of the original SED model implemented by RAP. Since late 2015, the SED model has been revised significantly, hence the learnings from this briefing note only reflects issues arising from the original SED model implemented between 2014 and early 2015.

Process Monitoring Briefing Note 2

This note summarises Process Monitoring Reports conducted by the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) component of DFID-Nepal’s Rural Access Programme 3 (RAP3). The summary looks at migration and its linkages with the household economy among RAP beneficiaries in Dailkeh, Doti, Kalikot and Jumla. Migration is hugely significant throughout Nepal and the mid and far western districts are no exception. Migration from western areas to the Terai or India (and indeed within these Districts with mountain dwellers moving to the mid hills in winter) has been a regular seasonal choice for thousands of households for generations. The government and other development actors have implemented a number of public wage and social protection programmes to provide seasonal employment opportunities to help people in the mid and far west to cope with livelihood shocks and to address some of the consequences of distress migration. This exercise was conducted during the implementation of the original SED model implemented by RAP. Since late 2015, the SED model has been revised significantly, hence the learnings from this briefing note only reflects issues arising from the original SED model implemented between 2014 and early 2015.

Process Monitoring Briefing Note 3

This note summarises Process Monitoring Reports conducted by the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) component of DFID-Nepal’s Rural Access Programme 3 (RAP3). The summary looks at the Karnali Employment Programme Technical Assistance (KEPTA) project in Kalikot and Jumla. This exercise was conducted during the implementation of the original SED model implemented by RAP. Since late 2015, the SED model has been revised significantly, hence the learnings from this briefing note only reflects issues arising from the original SED model implemented between 2014 and early 2015.

RMG Baseline Report

This report outlines the results of a survey conducted in April and May 2015 of households where at least one member was a participant in a RAP funded Road Maintenance Group (RMG) in the mid and far western regions of Nepal. The survey supplement the results obtained from the 2014 RAP household survey which surveyed eight other domains, split into two groups of district: RAP “build” districts (Bajura, Kalikot, Humla, Mugu) and RAP “maintenance” districts (Doti, Achham, Dailekh and Jumla).

RCA Baseline Report
