Project Description
The objective of the Second Additional Financing for the Road Sector Development Project for Nepal is for the residents of beneficiary districts to have all season road access thereby reducing travel time and improving access to economic centers and social services. This scope of works constitutes both a scale up of project activities and a restructuring of components to address post-quake needs, further capacity development, and resilience enhancements. The results framework of the parent operation will be modified in order to better reflect attributable outcomes from project interventions. The Government of Nepal (GON) originally requested this Second Additional Financing for the project through a letter from the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to the Bank dated May 18, 2015. In addition to IDA’s contribution to support for the Second AF, GON would also contribute US$ 10.0 million for a total Second AF project size of US$ 65.0 million.
