Promoting Infrastructure Transparency in Nepal

Ongoing Project, March 2023

SWN is undertaking a series of activities in March 2023 to promote Infrastructure Transparency Initiative (CoST) in Nepal. CoST is one of the leading global initiatives improving transparency and accountability in public infrastructure working with governmentprivate sector, and civil society to promote the disclosure, validation, and interpretation of data from infrastructure projects. This helps to inform and empower citizens and enables them to hold decision-makers to account. The activities supported in Nepal to promote CoST includes studies into good governance practices in Nepal; holding a workshop with key Government, private sector, and civil society institutions; and application of appropriate data disclosure standards building on the global CoST experience.
