Donor aid priorities for peacebuilding in Nepal’s post-peace settlement transition

This paper grows from the meeting between International Alert and the Donor Group on 23 November 2006 on how to respond effectively and appropriately in the changed political context in Nepal.

Drawing on the comments and analysis at the meeting, this paper offers recommendations on priorities for donor engagement. The basic theme is that short-term goals can be achieved, but only if addressing the culture of power in Nepal is the starting point.
