Nepal: Air Transport Capacity Enhancement Project

Evaluation Document | 19 April 2021

The project aimed to address main bottlenecks, such as safety compliance with international standards, capacity constraints, and CAAN’s organizational efficacy. Its envisaged impact was improved transport connectivity promoting broad-based economic growth in Nepal. The three expected outcomes were improved safety and capacity at TIA with reconfigured and upgraded airside infrastructure to international safety standards; enhanced safety at Lukla, Rara, and Simikot airports with additional safety infrastructure; and CAAN’s improved institutional capacity.

This report validates the completion report's assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Less than successful.
