The program is a follow-on to the ongoing Education Sector Program, subprogram III, which supports the Government of Nepal's 7-year (FY2010 FY2016) School Sector Reform Program (SSRP). The SSRP is supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and eight other development partners using the sector-wide approach (SWAp). Building on the achievements of the Education for All Program (2004 2009), the SSRP aims to (i) expand access and equity, (ii) improve quality and relevance, and (iii) strengthen the institutional capacity of the entire school education system. The Education Sector Program, subprogram III supported the first 3 years of SSRP implementation, and this program will support it for the next 3 years (FY2012 FY2014). It will contribute to Nepal's long-term economic and social development through an equitable, efficient, and relevant education system.
