This OGC discussion paper looks at existing efforts to generate evidence on governance at the national and sub-national levels, and how evidence is used in Nepal by state and non-state actors in the education sector.  The paper was presented at the UNDP Oslo Governance Centre & Canadian IDRC Event:  Evidence on Governance into Policy, The Role of Research Institutes and Think Tanks, Jan 18-19 2009.

This paper looks at the production as well as the use of research-based evidence in the field of governance in Nepal and attempts to answer the following research questions:
What are existing efforts to generate evidence on governance at the national and sub- national levels, including any home-grown governance assessments that may have taken place in the past few years?
What are the existing measurement tools for research on governance (e.g. corruption, public administration, decentralization, etc.) that are used in Nepal by state entities such as ministries and non state entities such as research institutes, think tanks and NGOs?
