SPCBN Civil Society Outreach Project - Public Participation in the Constitution Building Process
As one of its key objectives, the SPCBN project has been supporting civil society to facilitate the participation of excluded and disadvantaged communities in the development of the new Nepali constitution. This will be done in two phases.
The first phase specifically targets NGO federations, associations and/or consortia that represent historically marginalized communities in Nepal. As such, Request for Proposals (RFP) were made and seventeen grants, amounting to approximately US$ 40,000 each, were awarded to successful applicants. The purpose of the RFP was to select Nepali NGO partners who will implement a ‘Loktantrik Sambad’ (‘Democracy Dialogue’) process at the village and community level. The second phase of the project involved capacity building of CSOs (identified/selected) to enable them to facilitate democratic dialogues at the local level so that citizens could best deliver inputs in improving the draft constitution.
