Nepal: CLDP Conducts Webinar on Public Private Partnerships

September 17, 2020

On September 17, CLDP, in collaboration with the Nepal Renewable Energy Program (NREP), conducted a webinar on public-private partnerships (PPPs) for provincial Nepali government officials. Recent Nepali legislation has allowed local and regional authorities to procure infrastructure projects under a PPP model. Nepal is working to increase domestic and foreign investment at the sub-national level for infrastructure, with a focus on the energy sector. The webinar highlighted basic concepts of PPPs, PPPs across Nepali federal, provincial, and local governments, and the enabling policy environment for PPPs in Nepal. CLDP’s collaboration with NREP is part of its ongoing technical assistance under the Infrastructure Transaction and Assistance Network (ITAN). CLDP has been working with the Nepali government at the national level since 2018 on developing and implementing bankable infrastructure projects. 

Upcoming Programs

October 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020

 CLDP coaches will be working with the 2 Maldivian Vis Moot teams on written advocacy. The coaches will be conducting weekly webinars with the teams on helping them draft research their legal issues, formulate their arguments, and write their memoranda. First, the teams will focus on writing their claimant’s memorandum. Then, the teams will focus on writing their respondent’s memorandum. Once the teams have completed their briefs, they will focus on preparing their oral arguments.
