Civil Society in a Federal Nepal: A Landscape Study was funded by the British Council. The study focused on three key areas: (a) the political and economic dynamics around the CSO environment in the country, (b) the challenges and opportunities for CSO effectiveness and sustainability, and (c) the best practices and potential approaches for improved CSO engagement in Nepal's development, especially in the socio-political sector.
To answer questions around the three key areas, independent researchers conducted a literature review, six Focus Group Discussions (FGDs), and fifty-six Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) in Kathmandu and five other districts representing four of the seven provinces in April / May 2019. The FGD and KII respondents were purposively selected to represent important stakeholders and sectors, and efforts were made to ensure a good gender balance.
