WUPAP is being implemented in three phases 2 under the Flexible Lending Mechanism of IFAD
with a loan effectiveness date of 01 Jan 2003, revised completion date of 15 Jul 2016 and is currently in its final Phase III. Phase I was completed in FY 2006/07 in four districts. Phase II extended project coverage to eleven Districts and was completed in Jul 2012. Phase III began in Jul 2012 and is working in eight districts, following a Phase III design mission in Apr 2012. The total project budget across the three phases is USD32.75 million, of which IFAD Loan is USD20.13 million and IFAD Grant USD0.36 million (total IFAD allocation = SDR15.6 million). The total budget for Phase III is USD14.82 million of which the IFAD Loan is SDR 6.60 million.IFAD is currently preparing the 2013-2018 Country Strategic Opportunity Programme (COSOP)with GoN which also foresees the allocation of USD15m from IFAD’s Adaptation of Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) funds to improve climate change resilience of smallholders in Nepal. These forthcoming initiatives and the on-going IFAD supported projects in the Mid- and Far-Western regions on high value agriculture (HVAP) and improved seed for farmers (ISFP –“Biu-Bijan”) create a useful additional context to WUPAP Phase III.Phase III adopts important changes in the project modality designed to address implementation weaknesses evident in Phase II, and was explicitly designed to work within the structures of the Ministry of Federal Affairs & Local Development (MFALD - formerly Ministry of Local Development (MLD)) at the District and National Level. However, after the signing of the loan amendment to approve Phase III, GoN unilaterally transferred management of the project to the newly created Ministry of Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation (MCPA).In light of this, the mission objectives are: 1) Assess progress in implementation of the new Phase III modalities and provide support to the project team to address any bottlenecks or emerging issues; 2) Assess the viability of project implementation under the MCPA and make recommendations to IFAD and MoF on how to move forward in light of this assessment; 3) Agree with MoF and FCGO how to resolve the long running issues of financial management and financial staffing within the project, and 4) Complete the regular fiduciary and supervision responsibilities in line with IFAD’s current supervision policies.This Aide Memoire and Report specifically deal with the implementation of Phase III. Except where specifically stated otherwise, progress is assessed against plans for Phase III only.
