Nepal: Project Preparatory Facility for Energy
The Project Preparatory Facility will contribute to Nepal's improved energy security and make it a potential energy exporter. This will be achieved by supporting project preparatory activities for the Sun Koshi 2, Sun Koshi 3, and Dudh Koshi Hydropower Projects and a second 400-kilovolt transmission line project across Nepal's border with India. The facility will also provide public-private partnership project development services.
