This $1,947,468 project, operating from July 2015-July 2018, aims to facilitate opportunities to collaborate across caste and gender divides to enhance trust, empathy, and social ties between caste groups and among men and women. The project operates in ten districts, three of which were most affected by the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. The project is implemented by the Asia Foundation.

The Inclusive Dialogue for Political Transition is a three-year, $493,581 project, and will continue to host the original forum where political leaders have the opportunity to navigate difficult political subjects, negotiate policy for consideration, and further develop the peace process. The project will continue to conduct conflict studies in Nepal, and will facilitate inclusive dialogues to forge consensus on political and social issues.

USAID’s Civil Society: Mutual Accountability Project (CS:MAP) is a five-year, $15 million project to be implemented in 20 West, Mid-West and Far-West districts and 14 earthquake-affected districts of Nepal. USAID coupled its 2014 CSO political economy analysis with existing data and assessments to shape the project’s design. As a result, CS:MAP aims to foster a more legitimate, accountable, and resilient Nepali civil society, capable of advancing the public interest. The project will collaborate with a wide range of CSOs including non-governmental and non-profit organizations, non-governmental media outlets, member-based organizations, associations, unions, and federations.

On December 21, Nigeria’s Borno State Commissioner of Health announced the end of the state’s cholera outbreak after more than two weeks with no new recorded cholera cases. Health officials recorded nearly 5,400 suspected and confirmed cholera cases, including 61 related deaths, between mid-August and December 17.

This 10-megawatt photovoltaic power plant is currently under construction outside of Kandahar. The project employed an innovative reverse auction to select an Independent Power Producer (IPP) to build, own and operate the plant. The auction was made possible with $10 million in incentive funds provided by USAID. When complete, Kandahar Solar will be the first privately built and operated power plant of this capacity in Afghanistan.

The lack of peace-oriented and fact-based activities – those based on factual postwar findings, such as court decisions and widely accepted truths – to ensure a full understanding of what really happened during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is evident in the country’s educational system. At school, young generations experience intolerance, inter-ethnic, and interreligious fear, and segregation, which informs their attitudes – and thus influences their behavior – toward others.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is home to a growing number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) that are adopting international standards to supply sophisticated European Union customers, yet the economy is still not generating enough jobs for its citizens.

Singha Durbar is a three-year, $1 million program to mitigate public disillusionment and dissatisfaction with political leadership and processes by positively engaging the mass public to encourage a collaborative political culture.

USAID’s Stop Girl Trafficking project is a $1.5 million, three year project that works closely with girls and women, family guardians and civil society to address girl trafficking through education, awareness, community engagement, and counselling.

This five year (2017-2022), $20 million Niti Sambad program has a central role in achieving USAID/Nepal’s goal of advancing a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Nepal by strengthening inclusion and participation in political processes. This program will support democratic institutions, strengthen inclusion into political processes and harness political competition as an effective vehicle through which citizens can democratically choose their leaders who will, in turn, set a policy agenda responsive to the needs of the public.
