The DFAT-TAF Strategic Partnership on Subnational Governance in Nepal is responding to the opportunities and challenges emerging from the country’s transition to federalism. Since the end of a decade-long conflict in 2006, high expectations for inclusive governance and effective economic development have largely gone unmet due to political stalemates, a failure to rebuild local governance, and entrenched corruption. However, the constitution signed in September 2015 marked the beginning of Nepal’s transition from a unitary to a federal system guaranteeing locally elected officials the authority to self-govern and define local economic development.
The Partnership works in the following strategic areas:
Strategic Area 1: Generating Evidence and Data on Subnational Governance
Strategic Area 2: Support for Nepal’s Transition to Federal Governance
Strategic Area 3: Improving Local Governance Service Delivery and Economic Governance
Recognizing Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) as a key driver of inclusive local governments and sustainable development, the Partnership focuses on integrating GESI as a cross cutting theme across all program activities.
The Program Assistant will be responsible for providing administrative, program, and management support to its Subnational Governance program. S/he will also provide support for activities in other program areas as assigned.
