The team of consultants lead by Justin Ram (Dr) of JRAS, (Justin Ram Advisory Services) has played a pivotal role in advising the Government in the planning, implementation, and execution of these projects with a strong emphasis on capacity building of the local teams.

With the aim of breaking down barriers and obstacles that hinder the progress affecting the people, the NDU will continue to work in support of Ministries, departments, and agencies to strengthen the ability and capabilities in implementing the key projects.
