RAP3 is the first of a new generation of Local Road Network (LRN) projects that are a part of a Government of Nepal's (GON) led sector wide approach (SWAp) where the intention is to introduce a new model of development cooperation to promote greater harmonisation of donor and government activities in the sub sector. This will be achieved by GON and its development partners adopting a single, Government-led, RTI policy and common approaches to RTI development. This is to be matched by improving governance and capacity building at local and central levels of government to allow progressively greater reliance to be placed on government procedures for implementing future RTI investments.
There are five key milestones in the Inception Phase each one linked to a milestone/results payment. The Implementation Plan is the fourth milestone of the Inception Phase. It builds on the “Baseline, milestone and outcome report”, which was submitted to DFID on 23rd August 2013. The Implementation Plan incorporates a series of subsequent decisions by DFID concerning budget options and related results and outcomes. This means that the TA team has now completed 90% of the results based total budget for the Inception Phase.
The IMC Proposal stated that the Inception Report would include a summary of survey designs,initial findings from the surveys and feedback from the districts, recommendations on the LogFrame indicators, provisional targets and outline P4R payment mechanisms, including provisional anticorruption measures.However the Inception Phase was planned to start in March and last 6 full months.
This Project Completion Report (Report) summarises the approach, achievements and outcomes of the Rural Access Programme – Phase 2 (RAP2) implemented in October 2008 to September 2013.
