Summary

Poverty is widespread in Nepal and particularly severe in the rural areas. A strong correlation is observed between poverty incidence and road access: remote, inaccessible areas are generally much poorer than areas served by roads. The provision of road access is one of the most effective ways to improve the livelihood of poor people in remote areas.
DRSP aims to improve the living conditions of the local people by facilitating better access and improving mobility. This will be achieved by constructing, rehabilitating and maintaining rural roads in a labour-based, environmentally friendly and participatory (LEP) way, in four participating districts, the focus of the Programme will be on the most disadvantaged groups (DAGs) within society.
