Study of Urban Development and Service Delivery in Secondary Cities and Emerging Towns, Nepal


Dr Miles was the Team Leader for this World Bank funded project which was required to identify key urban service interventions for six municipalities, and lay the foundations for a Bank pipeline of lending.


The project involved the detailed analysis of the social and economic circumstances and prospects of the six municipalities, and included a comprehensive assessment of the financial strength and administrative and implementation capacities and capabilities of the municipalities. Recommendations for a national urban development policy were made and are in the process of being integrated into national policy.
