The 4th National Advisory Committee meeting of LGCDP, Phase-II was held on 05 December, 2014, under the chairpersonship of Dr. Som Lal Subedi, respected, Secretary, Ministry of Federal affairs and Local Development (MoFALD), and attended by honorable Ambassadors, and representatives from development partners, secretaries and joint secretaries of MoFALD, and other sector line ministries such as Ministry of Finance, National Planning Commission, FCGO, DG, DOLIDAR and Local Bodies Associations' representatives like ADDCN.
Development Partners (DPs) expressed that discussion held in the meeting will add more value and quality in the programme implementation in the days to come. Furthermore, MoFALD's commitment to implement the LGCDP programme in the difficult political transition was highly appreciated and expressed commitment to support the programme in the future as well. Some of the major policy endorsed by the 4th NAC was reducing fiduciary risks, capacity development schemes (funds, functions and functionaries) to be developed for the new municipalities, Community Awareness Centers (CACs) expansion, and conduct study to design roadmaps for the new municipalities amongst others.
