Sajhedrari Bikaas - Partnership for Local Development
December 16, 2013

Often Nepali’s main point of contact to government is through their local governance bodies.  Despite the absence of local elections, District and Village Development Committees and Municipalities provide basic public services.  As the Government of Nepal restructures the state under a new constitution and decentralizes critical government functions to sub-national units, USAID’s Partnership for Local Development project (Sajhedari Bikaas) strengthens the relationship between Nepalis and local government by improving transparency, accountability, and responsiveness.

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.

USAID/Nepal Saath-Saath Project reduces the transmission and impact of HIV and AIDS and improves reproductive health among selected most-at-risk populations in a manner that supports the Government of Nepal.



America has stood with Nepal for 65 years and we continue to stand with Nepal as it regains its strength—with stronger homes, healthier families, abundant agricultural yields, and a more inclusive government. As we put the past year behind us, please take a moment to reflect on how far we have come, be mindful of the times when light shone through the dark, and know that in the coming years, the United States will journey onward with Nepal toward our shared vision – a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Nepal.
