Policy Diagnostic Report: A Brief

In order to develop an inclusive policy process that honors Nepal’s cultural values and capitalizes on its wealth of human capital, Niti with a support from The Asia Foundation Nepal commissioned the diagnostics study of Nepali public policy process as part of its effort to build sustainable, in-country capacity for policy deliberation and policy making under the (still evolving and much hoped for) new constitution. The study was lead by Prof. Deborah Stone, the author of Policy Paradox: The Art of Political Decision Making (1988).
The study also finds that weak citizen participation, ineffective policy implementation, and lack of accountability of public officials as three key factors behind failure of public policies in Nepal. Niti Foundation believes that the issues of representation, implementation, and accountability will remain policy challenges and hence has decided to concentrate its effort on these issues.
Policy making in a democracy must fulfill three key functions:

  1. Representation: citizens must have a way to make their problems and needs known to government officials, and a way to make demands on officials to use government to address their problems.
  2. Implementation: once public officials pass laws and regulations, there must be systems for putting these policies into practice, or to put it another way, for translating words on paper into human actions.
  3. Accountability: there must be mechanisms by which officials are monitored, evaluated, and sanctioned when they have not met their responsibilities to carry out policy.
