DCID Senior Fellow Jamie Boex traveled to Nepal in October as part of a team of World Bank urban specialists. Nepal’s new federal constitution (2015) transferred the power to prioritize and implement major urban investment projects (such as urban roads, urban water and sanitation projects, and so on) from the national Ministry of Urban Development to the newly elected urban local governments themselves. As such, Dr. Boex is supporting the Ministry of Urban Development in designing and implementing an urban development grant scheme.
