Economic Analysis of Local Government Investment in Rural Roads in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.29 MB | Download   
Roads are an important priority for local government bodies in Nepal. This is because, if operational, they will open up a multitude of opportunities to enhance local livelihoods. Historically,rural communities have created local roads and other necessary infrastructure using both voluntary and paid local labor. Since the early 1990s, when resources and authority began to be channeled through local government bodies, the use of heavy equipment for road
construction such as bulldozers and excavators started to increase. Furthermore, the desire to establish road connections quickly also resulted in the increased use of unsustainable road construction approaches and methods. Unsustainable roads are those that have:
(i) no drainage arrangements;
(ii) high gradient;
(iii) no protection structures in critical places;
(iv) no biological protection;
(v) no operation and maintenance arrangements or fund; etc.

The overall objective of this study is to inform policy-makers of the costs and benefits of alternative road construction approaches, including social and environmental concerns, and propose specific recommendations on sustainable rural road construction tailored to different stakeholders, - central government agencies, District Development Communities, Village Development Committees (VDCs) and Communities.
