Importance of this project towards achieving the MDGs and consolidating peace

Although Nepal has made good progress towards achieving most of the MDGs over the last decade, the progress would have been greater if there had been peace and a stable multiparty democracy. This project will make an important contribution towards enabling every citizen to take part in the democratic process of electing the next national and local governments. This is of crucial importance for consolidating the peace and accelerating progress towards achieving the MDGs.
