Local Governance, Gender Responsive and Socially Inclusive Public Finance Management: Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices (KAP) is the survey carried out to map Gender Equality and Social Inclusion and Gender Responsive Budgeting knowledge, attitude, and practices of local governance institutions and functionaries. The survey is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Finance, Nepal Administrative Staff College, and UN Women and is supported by the Embassy of Finland.
This publication provides a thorough assessment of the KAP of local government units (LGUs). The report will be an important starting point towards enabling accountable systems at the LG level and help plan effective strategies to overcome barriers to the effective implementation of the GESI mandates. The survey findings will also serve as a baseline for all levels of government to strengthen gender-responsive public finance management.
