Past SDC interventions have focussed on making rural road construction work for the poor and disadvantaged through labour-intensive construction methods. This project now takes proven approaches further by ensuring even more all-weather accessibility to markets and services by emphasising the importance of maintenance and preservation of built roads through promotion of labour-based roads maintenance methods and by fostering an institutional process in the districts, which should pave the way for the highly successful concepts of road construction and maintenance to be adopted as national standards.

Lack of access is one of the principal reasons for high incidence of rural poverty in Nepal. There is a strong correlation between poverty and access to economic and social services. An estimated 30,000 kms of rural roads (over 50,000 Kms exist, of which more than 55 % are non-operable) are needed to provide the connectivity required. About 22% of the population still has to walk more than 4 hours in the hills and 2 hours in the plains to reach a strategic road network. Two district headquarters are yet to be connected by road. Therefore, a considerable gap exists in the provision of reliable access to services/opportunities for people in Nepal.
The main goal of the “Local Roads Improvement Project” is to contribute to improved livelihoods of the people and to local economic development in the four programme districts of Ramechhap, Sindhuli, Okhaldhunga and Khotang.
