CEPPS works with political parties, members of parliament and staff, local government officials, civil society, the Election Commission of Nepal (ECN) and other government bodies to establish more transparent, inclusive and accountable electoral and legislative processes, improving the public’s trust in their institutions.
To support this overarching goal, we focus on developing internal political party structures, operations and capacities to assist leaders and members to understand, develop and implement policies within the new federal structure that are more inclusive and responsive to citizen needs.
CEPPS provides technical assistance to federal and provincial assemblies and its members on evidence-based policy research and development through policy dialogues, forums, town hall meetings, workshops and site visits.
CEPPS also provides technical support to the ECN to implement inclusive elections, reform the electoral legal framework and work collaboratively with electoral stakeholders and builds the capacity of civil society organizations to conduct civic and voter education programs to encourage marginalized groups to participate in political processes.
