Nepal: Poverty Alleviation Project in Western Terai
PDF File Size: 341 KB | Download   
The overall project design was flexible for implementation so that concerns arising as it
progressed in the field could be addressed. This was one of the major strengths of the project. The project called for coordination amongst the different agencies implementing various components, which did not materialise.Long-term sustainability of poverty alleviation and institutionalisation aspects of the grassroots level organisations such as
saving and credit groups and cooperative were not envisaged in the project design. The crucial role of saving and credit groups and social mobiliser was not realised at the project design stage. Alternatives to NRB to extend credit facility to the group members were not visualized and capacity of GBR to deliver loan service to the target groups was overestimated, which was the main reason for not covering the target group. The project is considered to be the first of its kind in Nepal, which utilised the existing agencies (DDCs, VDCs, LDOs), and their practices and procedures. Instead of creating its own structures to deliver the project components, the existing institutions were used-further consolidating their practices in relevant components. This had a tremendous cost minimising effects for the project. 95.59% of appraised IFAD loan was spent till project
completion date 15 July 2005. The farmers contributions was not recorded into monetary
terms, however their labour input was much higher than the expectation. In spite of this, the fact that the project achieved its objectives only partly and in some cases did not reach the expected target group makes it partly inefficient. IFAD is responsible for the shortcomings of first project design, which luckily was flexible enough to suggestions made by the project implementing agencies and HMGN for modifications in the original Project design, which allowed all necessary changes to be made.
