Nepal Participatory Poverty Assessment

Design and implementation of Nepal’s first post-peace process participatory governance assessment, commissioned by DFID Nepal.  

This consultation for DfID resulted in the production of a participatory governance assessment which focuses on the grassroots experiences of citizens in post-conflict Nepal. The research process and ultimate presentation of findings in June 2007 aimed to explore the views of poor and excluded Nepalese citizens on the post-conflict state and the democratisation process, identifying their development priorities and illuminating the relations between poor and excluded communities and the government. The findings were then used to inform the development of the NPC’s 3-year Interim Development Plan and serve as the basis for a regional, district and community communications strategy.
