Developing an Allocation Formula for the Decentralized Financing and Development Program and Implications for the Design of a System of Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations in Nepal
PDF File Size: 312 KB | Download   
The government’s decentralization policy finds its roots in the Constitution of 1991, which mandates peoples’ participation through decentralization as a fundamental rule in the governance system of the country. Subsequently, a two-tiered system of local government was created, comprising 75 Districts as the intermediary level and Municipalities and Villages as the lower level of the government structure. The Local Self-Government Act, adopted in 1999, spells out the functional responsibilities of local governments and assigned sweeping responsibilities (including for primary education and basic health care) to the local level. However, in reality little or no devolution or expenditure responsibilities has taken place yet.
