The Small Scale Capacity Development Technical Assistance (S-CDTA) will be implemented over 20 months from approval of the S-CDTA till July 2012. The S-CDTA team will deliver the outcomes and output of the S-CDTA as indicated in the paper and in the TORs of the Focal and Co-Focal Points. The services of most international and national consultants will be required in the areas identified during the course of implementation of the TA as required by ADB, Development Partners (DPs) and the Government of Nepal (GON).
