These Guidelines focus on introducing IRAP in Nepalese context of local development planning with detailed procedures and steps to be followed for its application. Portraying the structure of the local-level planning context in Nepal the document at the outset shows where and how this tool can or may be applied. Then, discussing the appropriateness of `accessibility¿ as against `transport¿ in improving rural access various elements pertaining to it are
explained. Different steps of applying IRAP are presented from second
