Economic Analysis of Local Government Investment in Rural Roads in Nepal 2011
Abstract:
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 labour. Since the early 1990s, when resources and authority began to be channelled 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.
