SNRTP aligns with the Interim Strategy Note (ISN) for Nepal and forthcoming World Bank Group Country Partnership Strategy (CPS). The CPS specifically highlights improving connectivity throughout NEPAL as a key consideration for inclusive economic growth and rural poverty reduction. SNRTP’s strategic goals are to reduce extreme poverty and increase shared prosperity amongst the bottom 40% through increase in agricultural incomes for rural communities in participating districts.
Project Development Objectives (PDO):
The PDO is to enhance the availability and reliability of transport connectivity for rural communities and participating districts.
