Kathmandu, June 11
Daayitwa, a non-government organisation working in the promotion of entrepreneurship and good governance, launched the Daayitwa Public Policy Fellowship programme for 2021.
In a virtual event on Friday, the organisation announced the launch.
This fellowship engages young Nepali talents from across the world in supporting the Nepal government with evidence-based economic policy research.
The organisation’s Governance and Civic Engagement Coordinator Pawas Manandhar informed that six fellows, selected from 107 applicants trained in eight countries, would provide six-month policy research support to five government organisations, including National Planning Commission; Ministry of Finance; Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development; Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies; and Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens in 2021.
Further, the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari, who attended the event as the chief guest, congratulated the selected fellows and states, “This will bridge the gap between youth and the policymakers and further strengthen the policymaking.”
