Planning support to the DRILP in Nepal

Dezentralized Rural Infrastructure and Livelihoods Project

The Decentralized Rural Infrastructure and Livelihoods Project (DRILP) in Nepal is funded by a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), with Technical Assistance being provided by SDC, through the technical consultants FRISA-ITECO and Skat. Over the period 2005-2011 it supports road construction and maintenance in 18 remote and mountainous districts, whilst also implementing supplementary investments to enhance the livelihoods of local people. The main aim is to reduce poverty, especially that of disadvantaged groups, and provide appropriate and environmentally friendly access to previously unconnected and remote areas. Skat provides the international planning specialist of the consultants responsible for establishing and monitoring the planning procedures for DRILP. The tasks consist of:

  • Reviewing the rural infrastructure planning process, procedures and documents of the districts
  • Contributing to the Project Procedures Manual in respect of the definition of the planning and selection procedures for rural transport infrastructure sub-projects and supplementary investments
  • Overseeing the preparation of a training programme and conducting training in the planning and selection procedures for rural transport infrastructure sub-projects and supplementary investments
  • Overseeing the arrangements for provision of guidance to the¬†districts in the identification & prioritisation of sub-projects, and the conduct of feasibility studies
  • Supporting the District Implementation Teams in village level consultations and planning for supplementary investments
  • Providing advice to participating districts in improving their planning processes for better integration and co-ordination of rural infrastructure development with other rural development activities
