POLICY REVIEW AND ANALYSIS
This is one of the key strengths of SAP Nepal due to its successful policy influencing through programs like i) violence against women in politics ii) people in planning process iii) gender sensitive budgeting iv) issues of citizens v) role of civil society in national development vi) peace building and conflict resolution. The organization always advocated for people centered policy reforms and meaningful engagement of marginalized communities in policy reforms. It has previous experience of organizing consultations at village and district levels and then bringing these people’s agenda in national and regional platforms. SAP Nepal is the pioneering organization for initiating the concept of Peoples Summit to influence SAARC in early 2000. It clearly indicates its innovations in brining peoples voices in policy discourses.
