Background

The newly established Federal Parliament and provincial assemblies are the most important democratic institutions in Nepal. Since 2008 UNDP has supported first the Constituent Assembly and later the Legislature Parliament in their tasks of participatory constitution-building, law-making and oversight. This was first done through the project Support to Participatory Constitution-Building in Nepal (SPCBN). In 2015 the SPCBN project was replaced by/transformed into the more comprehensive Parliament Support Project (PSP). UNDP is now proceeding with a second phase of that project.

PSP II will focus on strengthening the Federal Parliament and provincial assemblies of Nepal. The main counterpart is the nine parliament secretariats and the committees established in each parliament. The project aims at strengthening the institution parliament as such in its role as legislator, oversight body and representative of the people. PSP II will focus on five specific outputs: (i) the effectiveness of parliaments to participate in PFM at the national and sub-national levels; (ii) the ability of parliaments to be fully engaged in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs through their roles in law-making and oversight; (iii) increased transparency within the work of the parliaments to address the need for information about their work and to address the potential for political anomalies; (iv) the institutionalization of the engagement of women, youth and disadvantaged groups to ensure their voices are heard during parliamentary processes; and (v) targeted support to MPs, representing women and disadvantaged groups to support them in assuming more leadership roles within parliament and their parliamentary party groups.
