The Sanighat-Phukot-Syuna-Sipkhana District Road (SPSSDR, 17.650 Km), Kalikot lies in the higher Himalayan Zone of Province 6 of Nepal. The road has been constructed adopting labour based environmentally friendly and participatory (LEP) approach. The road is earthen surface and is designed and constructed following Nepal Rural Road Standard 1998 (1st revision in 2012). All constructed structures are flexible, and no permanent bridges and culverts are built.  The main objectives of the resilience audit are to examine the adequacy of the current new-built civil engineering structures particularly water management structures, bio-engineering techniques, and propose opportunities for missing structures, assess the maintenance approach and provide plan of action including intervention measures to improve climate resilience of the road infrastructure as far as possible.
