Better Information, Better Aid: Nepal Country Study
Finding and understanding information on aid in Nepal, as in many aid receiving countries, is complex. Nepal receives aid from up to 50 bilateral and multilateral donors, more than 150 international NGOs and thousands of national and local NGOs. Many different people would like to know more about aid flows to Nepal to help ensure that aid money is spent in accountable and effective ways.
In Nepal, we are working with a number of NGO-partners, initially over a six-month period, to strengthen their knowledge and skills to access, analyse and use information on aid, and to gather evidence on the best tools and methods to make aid information accessible and useful to a wide variety of people. These organisations will act as information intermediaries, working at different levels to address the five areas identified during the consultation: availability, accessibility and analysis of aid information, capacity development and evidence, as well as exploring ways that better information on aid can support the gathering of feedback from the intended beneficiaries of aid-funded projects.
