“I had not realized it before…..I now see how useful it can be” Local Government Leader
S.W. Nepal Pvt. Ltd. (Scott Wilson Nepal, SWN) under the EU Humanitarian Aid funded Pratibaddha project, has been disseminating model guidelines during a workshop on ‘Resilient Local Road Construction and Landslide Management’ to the local government officials. The workshop aims to support them procure services that respond to greener and nature-friendly engineering services in road building at a local government level. The project covers Bigu, Tamakoshi, Bhotekoshi Gaunpalika, and Barhabise Nagarpalika in Sindhupalchowk and Dolakha districts.
Recently, the workshops were completed in eight wards of Bigu Rural Municipality where the local government official felt a gap. A gap of not having proper guidance in the planning and implementation phase for the greener and safer local road’s construction practices. One of the local government officials mentioned that he had not realized it earlier but now he could see how useful it could be. The workshop addressed the gap and the Guideline supported in producing one that they can use to acquire greener skills in developing the road networks in Nepal.
The Pratibaddha project is led by People in Need, with its consortium partners SWN, NSET, CSRC, Durham University, and Northumbria University.
