GPOBA supported the design and implementation of the $150 million Nepal Urban Governance and Infrastructure Project (NUGIP). The activity conducted an operational deep-dive assessment and addressed opportunities for establishing results-based approaches.

This TA would: 

1) diagnose at operational level the institutional and policy challenges to deliver solid waste management services;

2) propose service improvement plans

3) assess infrastructure investment needs for SWM, and

4) Identify opportunities for strengthening accountability in policy development and financing through results-based approaches.

In 2013, GPRBA developed a successful subsidy pilot program in Nepal that utilized performance-based grants to improve service delivery and financial sustainability in five municipalities.
