The UNDP/CCD held its 8th federalism workshop for the proposed Lumbini-Awadh-Tharuwan province in the proposed capital, Ghorahi. This province has been created to recognize the ethnic identity, language and historical area of the local Indigenous people. It includes 373 VDCs (including 12 municipalities) from eight districts: Nawalparasi, Kapilvastu, Dang, Bardiya, Rupendehi, Kailai, Banke and Kanchanpur. According to the 2001 census, the province has a population of 37, 65,000, including Hill Hindus (33%) and Dalits (6%), Tharu (26%), other Janjatis (10%), Tarai people (23%) and Muslim (8%).
The objective of the workshop was to sensitize the participants to the concept of federalism and federal structure, its advantages as well as challenges in relation to the general context of Nepal and to explore the existing facts on opportunities and challenges for the implementation of federal structure. The program aimed to provide social and political activists with general insights into various dimensions of federalism from the experts, and promote discussion on the local context, enabling people to make recommendations to the Constituent Assembly to address their needs. The program was designed to take forward the momentum of dialogues on federalism in relation to the general context of Nepal as well as particular local contexts.
