Opportunities for linking economic recovery and peacebuilding: Business perceptions from eastern and central Terai
This report aims to better understand the challenges around linking economic recovery and the wider peace process in Nepal.
It presents key issues, findings and recommendations from a series of research efforts carried out in Kathmandu, as well as Parsa and Morang, two districts in the eastern and central Terai that sit on the east-west industrial corridor, in the course of 2008.
The research aimed to better understand the challenges around linking economic recovery and the wider peace process in Nepal, and sought to surface district- and Kathmandu-level perceptions of relevant stakeholders, especially among the business community.
The target audience for this briefing is Nepali government officials, civil society and private sector representatives, as well as the donor community active in Nepal. Recommendations for each group are included in section 3.
