Rural Access Programme 3

Conceived in 1999 as a comprehensive poverty alleviation programme, UK Aid-funded RAP uses the construction of transport infrastructure as an entry point for improving the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people in remote areas of Nepal – communities with limited access to goods and social services.Now in its third stage, RAP’s implementation has involved construction of tracks, trails and roads using labour-intensive, environmentally sound and climate resilient methods; alongside complementary socio-economic interventions. Besides the evident benefits of improved access, RAP has generated significant employment in rural areas, especially for women.
