Better Governance Eases Nepal’s Transition to Federalism

Client: Asian Development Bank (ADB)

Nepal is strengthening its national and local public financial management and governance systems with support from ADB and other development partners.

The modernization of the country’s administrative systems was initiated by increasing financial resources and leveraging information technology. An online procurement system was developed and rolled out nationwide along with corruption prevention tools. Communities were also encouraged to participate in local governance, which promoted accountability.

These initiatives improved the delivery of public services, contributing to Nepal’s smooth transition to a federal system of government.
