Title: Fiscal Decentralization (FD) in Nepal: A case of Banepa Municipality

Speaker: Mr.Mahesh Parajuli

Fiscal Decentralization is a high policy agenda in most countries around the world assuming to achieve efficiency and good governance values such as accountability, transparency, and less corruption. Several studies demonstrated the mixed results while evaluating components and influence of fiscal decentralization especially in developing countries as its highly contextual nature. Nepal has been implementing a fiscal decentralization policy for two decades. In the case of Nepal, a little number of researches has been done to analyze the process of fiscal decentralization as well as its influence at the local level. Almost no study has been carried out about how a municipality incorporated the fiscal decentralization process at the local level in Nepal.
