The project seeks to develop a detailed assessment report on sectoral and cross-sectoral legal frameworks of government agencies and policies and practices of other stakeholders (national and international financial institutions, private sector including consulting and contracting firms) in Nepal related to natural resource safeguards in linear infrastructure, their implementation status and capacity assessment of key stakeholders.
