The programme focuses on support to the private sector, and to local government through the Department of Local Infrastructure Development and Agricultural Roads (DoLIDAR) and the District Development Committees (DDCs) in the programme districts. The budget for the programme is approximately USD 70 million for the five-year period. The overall objective is promotion of sustainable inclusive growth that reduces poverty and raises living standards. UNNATI builds on three pillars of The Value Chain Component; The Infrastructure Component and The Enabling Environment Component. The three components are interlinked with the Value Chain Component as the core of the programme. ORGUT is contracted by Danida as the Management Contractor (MC) and provides the technical assistance to one sub-component of the Value Chain Component (Selected Value Chains) and to the entire Infrastructure Component.

The objective for the two inputs is “to develop the M&E system at the program level, tools for base line; M&E framework as inputs to the inception report as per project documents”. This second input concentrated on building the capacity of UNNATI Specialist staff to be able to operationalise and build the MRM system, and bring the MRM Manual to “first edition” status.
