Projects must serve locals, says Kahane

Nuwakot, May 30:

The UN resident representative to Nepal, Matthew Kahane, today called on the representatives of political parties, cooperatives and journalists to advise the UN about the types of programmes that should be launched for the benefit of target groups in the villages of Nuwakot. Noting that parties accountable to the people were in the government, Kahane hoped “lasting peace would be established in Nepal”.

Kahane arrived in Bidur today to assess the effectiveness of programmes run under the assistance of the UNDP. Talking to representatives of political parties, cooperatives

and journalists, Kahane called on them to come up with suggestions for the future programmes to be launched by the UN for the reconstruction of physical infrastructure and the transformation of the society.

While he held talks with representatives of the cooperatives about methods to be adopted for the operation of cooperative programmes, his discussions with the representatives of the political parties focused on types of programmes that should be launched in the district. His discussions with journalists focused on measures that can be taken to make the programmes effective.
