The Strengthening Political Parties, Electoral and Legislative Processes (SPPELP) project is a five-year, $26.5 million effort that supports political parties, electoral institutions, legislative processes, and civil society organizations to promote a more stable and peaceful democracy in Nepal. The project is designed to restore public confidence in democratic processes and institutions and to promote greater political participation, especially that of marginalized populations.
While Nepal is often cited as a progressive country in terms of equal rights for sexual and gender minorities, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the country continue to face a wide range of obstacles as individuals and as a community, according to a new comprehensive report released today.
Nepal - Country Development Cooperation Strategy Summary (Fiscal year 2014-2018)
USAID Nepal will hold a pre-proposal conference for the KISAN 2 project (RFP number SOL-367-15-000002) on November 14 from 13:00 to 16:30 at the Royal Party Palace, in Maharajgunj, next to the U.S. Embassy. Up to three people may attend from each pre-registered organization.
Landlocked between India and China, two rapidly changing countries, Nepal remains one of the poorest countries in the world and continues to cope with the effects of a decade-long insurgency that ended in 2006. Located in the Himalaya mountain range, the country is greatly impacted by global climate change and struggles with both water scarcity in some areas and increased flooding in others. Supporting progress toward a democratic, resilient and prosperous Nepal is a priority for U.S. development efforts.
