Strategic Policy Recommendations

The following pages of this document represent concise summaries of the main, overarching findings in each of the three key areas of GMC Nepal’s research presented as recommendations for policymakers and other influential stakeholders in the concerned sectors of Health, Education, and Migration.

Key Highlights:

  • Adoption into the federal governance framework introduced by the 2015 Constitution needs to be prioritized so other policy concerns are handled by appropriate stakeholders.
  • Lack of adequately detailed recordkeeping and database management across sectors has led to unclear mechanizations of policy failures.
  • There is an urgent need to place the focus on marginalized communities with regards to health, education, and migration governance, as some communities face challenges unique to them.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed a lack of emergency preparedness and crisis management channels across sectors, that should be addressed as soon as possible.
