Nepal Peace and Development Strategy : 2010-2015
Abstract:
Nepal’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) sets out a peace-building framework for Nepal’s development partners through its ambitious, transformational agenda on equity, inclusion, accountability, good governance and a restructuring of the state. While elaborated in a political agreement, these ‘root causes’ need to be concretely addressed through long-term development processes and interventions. In recognition of this reality, Nepal’s development partners have developed this Peace and Development Strategy. The strategy aims to provide a framework for how Nepal’s development partners can work together to support implementation of the CPA. It seeks to improve impact and avoid the duplication, gaps and missed opportunities that the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) identifies as common risks to peace-building efforts in fragile contexts. It articulates where ‘development’ and ‘peace’ intersect, so that development partners include peace-building priorities in their strategic plans and set aside the necessary resources, if and when called upon to assist. The strategy also enables partners to review their coordination arrangements and look critically at where they can adapt their working methods to some of the specific challenges of peace-building. Most importantly, the strategy aims to ensure that the important, longer-term peace-building agenda is not lost sight of, with a en on more naturally drawn to the more visible, urgent political priorities of the short term. The strategy does not attempt to define the entirety of development partners’ support to development in Nepal. Rather, it attempts to focus on the peace dimensions of development, and how to ensure these are incorporated in the overall development agenda. Rather than attempting to address the full spectrum of development issues therefore, this strategy needs to be read as an attempt to narrow in on the specific peace-building priorities of Nepal’s transition.
