Kathmandu, November 4

Total 18 local governments in three districts of Kathmandu Valley have formed a consortium with a mission to develop advanced cities and towns in the area.

Kathmandu Metropolitan City’s Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya leads the Valley Municipal  Forum.

Beginning its work, the Forum has recently brought mayors of the cities together to issue an eight point commitment on conservation of natural environment while accelerating development works.

Shakya says the forum will help the municipal governments execute their proposed plans in a coordinated fashion. He is also hopeful that it will be instrumental in introducing a monorail system in the Valley.

“We have also moved forward to handle waste management jointly. We will share costs of these projects if necessary,” he says.
