The project aims to assist the Government of Nepal in developing evidence-based policies to harness effectively the link between migration and development.
The Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI) and Institute for Integrated Development Studies (IIDS) at Kathmandu University in collaboration with the Government of Nepal have jointly initiated a research on the topic Identifying Infrastructure Needs in Nepal. The research aims to assess the infrastructure needs and gaps of the
country specifically on the four major areas: Energy, Transportation, Urban Development, Water and Sanitation.
