Nepal - Second Higher Education Project : restructuring (English)

The objectives of the Second Higher Education Project for Nepal are: (a) to enhanced quality and relevance of higher education and research through a set of incentives for promoting effective management and financial sustainability of academic institutions; and (b) to improved access for academically qualified under-privileged students, including girls, dalits and educationally disadvantaged janajati to higher education through financial assistance and enhanced capacity of higher secondary schools. A level one restructuring is proposed as there is a need to modify the project development objectives, key performance indicators, and selected implementation arrangements. Government of Nepal (GON) and the implementing agencies support the decision to restructure the project to improve implementation effectiveness, including reallocation of resources to those sub-components that have progressed well in the first three years of the project. The restructuring comprises the following elements: (i) revision of the project development objectives and the results and monitoring framework (indicators and targets); (ii) simplification of project design by streamlining components and dropping some activities; (iii) modification and strengthening of implementation arrangements; and (iv) corresponding amendments in the Financing Agreement. The combined effect of changes is to enhance ownership, improve the likelihood of achieving project objectives during the remaining implementation period, and enhance the sustainability of reforms.
