A preliminary consultation meeting on the Climate finance governance (CFG) program was organized by TI-Nepal in Pokhara on 24 December 2017. The CFG program is being implemented with the support of Transparency International and the Germany Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). After a careful mapping of major climate projects in Nepal, three potential districts were shortlisted for local level action and TI-Nepal Affiliated Organizations (AOs) from Chitwan, Gulmi and Kaski districts invited for the consultation. Fruitful discussions were held on the topic of climate finance and CFG activities targeting research, partnership building, media sensitization, integrity pledge and grievance redressal. Information on stakeholders and climate/environment projects in respective districts was shared. AOs were requested to extend cooperation to initiate targeted CFG activities at the local level. An understanding evolved out of the consultation, whereby TI-Nepal and AOs will join hands for three months to pilot climate finance governance activities in Nepal.
