LOCAL GOVERNANCE, GENDER RESPONSIVE AND SOCIALLY INCLUSIVE PUBLIC FINANCE MANAGEMENT: KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES
08 December 2022
The Constitution of Nepal defines Nepal as an inclusive state where the rights of women, disadvantaged, and marginalized communities are safeguarded through state policies and practices. In order to make Nepal an inclusive state, there should be provisions to ensure equal access to the public resources and opportunities, the Government of Nepal is committed to make it happen. At the time Nepal is embarking towards institutionalization of the federal form of governing system, where the state authorities including political, administrative, and financial authorities, are shared among the federal units, developing a common understanding among the state agencies on aspects of inclusive state is essential.
