Kathmandu, December 30
Daayitwa, a policy research NGO, says the 11th cohort of its Public Policy fellows has graduated.
A graduation event was held on Wednesday virtually in the presence of Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhakri.
The Daayitwa Nepal Public Policy Fellowship 2021 had started in June this year, placing six fellows selected from among 107 applicants trained in eight countries, at five government host institutions, including the National Planning Commission, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Agriculture, and Ministry of Women.
“Over six months, these youth researchers conducted evidence-based policy research and have submitted their policy findings and recommendations to their host institutions,” the organisation claims.
Since 2013, Daayitwa has been running the fellowship programme with the aim to bridge the trust deficit between the Government of Nepal and Nepali youth and promote evidence-based policy decisions. The organisation runs Nepal Public Policy Fellowship at the federal level and Nepal Public Administration Fellowship at the municipal level.
