The SEACAP 3 project is part of the wider South East Asia Community Access Programme (SEACAP) whose strategic theme is 'livelihoods of poor and vulnerable people in South East Asia improved sustainability'. SEACAP 3 will contribute to this overall objective through the development and mainstreaming of local resource-based standards for Low Volume Rural Roads (LVRRs). This document focuses on the dissemination and mainstreaming strategy with particular emphasis on Human Resource Development (HRD) by reviewing the current situation concerning the existing implementation capacity at all levels and the actual capacity to deliver training for the rural infrastructure (road) sector. The paper further outlines potential solutions for other mainstreaming mechanisms and suggests steps to be undertaken to ensure sustainability. In addition the paper also investigates the possibilities for attaining a sustainable road technology research capacity.
