Economic infrastructure needs are linked closely to the income generation opportunities identified through Market Systems Analysis and the Government’s District and Village Development Planning process. RAP3 followed a Community Asset Management approach that includes new construction, capacity building, and operation and maintenance (OM) to ensure sustainable use of all infrastructure interventions. This approach helps Village Development Committees (VDCs) and users to maintain and manage the full range of local infrastructure assets.
Typical Economic Infrastructure Interventions
Rural Access Infrastructure
- Village and community roads
- Trails and trail bridges
- Gravity ropeways and river crossing tuins
- Farmer managed irrigation
- Integrated water management
- Renewable energy and electrification
- Post-harvest market infrastructure
Where appropriate, RAP3 supported the revision of local and national guidelines for Community Asset Management for a range of investments to promote disaster resilience and risk reduction and make them accessible to local people.
