Governments are increasingly turning to Public Policy Innovation Labs (PILs) to
find solutions to difficult and challenging complex systemic problems. The proposed creation of a Nepali PIL, hosted by NASC, would be an
opportunity to build policy development capacity within the Nepali government.
INNOVATE NEPAL would be a focal point for the exchange of ideas, sharing of
resources and transfer of knowledge. It would bring together experts, planners,
designers and problem solvers into a collaborative space. In this discussion series,
Mcfarlane would bring ideas about PIL establishment and its influence in the
policy environment of Nepal.
