We welcomed the significant political changes in Nepal following the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in November 2006. Elections to a Constituent Assembly in April 2008 led to the declaration of Nepal as a Federal Republic. Nepal has now appointed its first President and established a multi-party Government.

The new Government recently announced an ambitious programme of work to advance Nepal's peace process. We are helping the Government meet their objectives.
