UNICEF and Decentralization in Nepal
PDF File Size: 346 KB | Download   
The Local Self-Governance Act (LSGA) 1999(2055 BS) has provided a powerful impetus for decentralized governance in Nepal. It Provides unprecedented latitude and leverage to local bodies (District Development Committees (DDCs), village Development Committees (VDCs),and municipalities)to mobilize their own resources and implement development activities. In the Social sector, this law makes important provisions for women, children and disadvantaged sections of society to participate in the development process. A mandatory provision for female representation in local bodies has brought over 40,000 women representatives into leadership roles at the local level.
