The proportions of positions (by sex, age, persons with disabilities, and population groups) in public institutions (national and local legislatures, public service, and judiciary) compared to national distributions is average. The duty bearers and right holders claims that the situation is progressing. But their representations are merely process-oriented because of constitutional mandate but lack the decisive role. The local government showed commitment to creating additional provisions for women’s participation and grievance redressal.
The finding is based on the LNOB Nepal consortium’s initiative on SDG monitoring adopting Community Score Card (CSC) focusing specific indicators under SDG goals 4, 5, 10, 13, 16 and 17 considering dire needs on improving progress on these goals. As part of the community scorecard, community people and local government authorities make efforts in identifying progress and gaps in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. In the process of CSC, separate rankings are prepared for communities, duty bearers and there was a commonly agreed score based on interface meeting between the right holders and duty bearers. The differences in rating present condition by right holders and duty bearers’ claim and future expectations on changes by both groups were later adjusted based on mutual understanding and discussion in the interface discussions. It indicates that this community-led participatory monitoring supports in providing more realistic tracking of the progress and expectations to avoid future conflict and promote collaboration and trust.
