This report describes and combines the results of baseline studies conducted at the two selected pilot study sites for the participatory roadside stabilisation project in Nepal. Both these sites are located in Dhankuta District in the Eastern Hills. The baseline results for the 17 households belonging to the Road User Group (RUG) for Site-1 and the 35 households belonging to the Road User Group (RUG) for Site-2 were gathered and are analysed in this report using a sustainable analysis framework where a project indicator is proposed for each of the six livelihood assets. The baseline report notes that the context of the project has undergone a radical change as a result of Nepal’s political federalisation, which came into full force in December 2017.
