NPI is pleased to announce the selection of Mr. Bikal Shrestha, PhD and his team for their selection as the recipients of the NPI Policy Audit and Research Award 2022. His team comprises of Mr. Ram Bahadur Charmakar and Mr. Ujwal Adhikari as Research Assistants. Together, they will be carrying out research on “Scoping the policy domain of reforms in local governance in Nepal.”
The topic is extremely relevant in Nepal at the moment given the federalization exercise currently underway. The goal of the research is to carry out rigorous analysis of mal-governance at the local government level so as to be able to make actionable policy recommendations on how local governance can be enhanced across the country.
Please join us in congratulating Mr. Shrestha and his team.
