MEETINGS WITH THE MINISTRY


Upon meeting with us, under-secretaries Khim Bahadur Kunwar (pictured left) and Harischandra Dhakal (pictured bottom left) from the Ministry of Finance’s International Economic Cooperation and Coordination (IECC) Division confirmed that recent political stability has led to positive structural changes and encouraging advances in the development of vital infrastructure as well as the delivery of basic services. Nonetheless, continued investment, financing and support from development partners like OFID is still very much needed for the country to fully develop its own capacity and meet the needs of its growing population. Kunwar emphasized that all of Nepal’s development projects are now designed to encourage gender equality and include previously marginalized social groups: “As far as I know, we’re one of the best countries in the world, in terms of our mandate,” he said, referring to Nepal’s newly-adopted Constitution. “We have a gender and social inclusion component not just in central or provincial government, but also at the local level, where we have significant female participation,” Kunwar continued. “We started at close to zero, but now that we’ve started, we hope to see increasing numbers in the years to come.”
