The Rural Community Infrastructure Works program was implemented by the Ministry of Local Development in 1996/97 in 20 food deficient districts of Nepal. WFP provided food assistance and GTZ provided technical assistance to the program. The objectives of the program are to (i) improve the accessibility of food to rural people, (ii) improve the infrastructure of rural communities, and (iii) build the capacity of the local people to implement their own programs. With the financial support from GTZ, New ERA provided technical assistance to the program in three districts: Kavrepalanchok, Sindhupalanchok and Dolakha. In each of these districts New ERA provided four professionals, an engineer, an overseer, a sociologist and a gender motivator. These professionals assisted the Ministry of Local Development in planning, implementing and evaluating the various projects undertaken by the program in the districts.
