dc.description.abstractThe study draws on the experience of the ADB-supported project implemented during 1999–2007. The project aimed to sustainably raise agricultural productivity and incomes of smallholder farmers in the Terai region of eastern and central Nepal by installing 15,000 shallow tube wells and rehabilitating or constructing 600 kilometers of farm-to-market roads in a complementary intervention. At the end of the project 10,870 shallow tube wells and 300 kilometers of farm-to-market roads had been improved.
