The current Constituent Assembly/Legislature Parliament and in the future the parliaments at all tiers of government are the most important institutions of representative democracy. Since 2008 UNDP has supported the Constituent Assembly/Legislature Parliament in its task of participatory constitution-building, mainly through the project Support to Participatory Constitution-Building (SPCBN) in Nepal. The SPCBN project will be replaced by/transformed into a more comprehensive Parliament support project.
The Parliament Support Project, will focus on strengthening the Constituent Assembly/Legislature Parliament of Nepal. The main counterpart is the Parliament Secretariat. The project aims at strengthening the institution parliament as such in its role as legislator, oversight body and representative of the people. In addition it will put two specific emphases: (1) It aims at strengthening parliament’s ability to pro-actively assume its role in respect to early recovery, full recovery and equitable regional development. (2) It will support CA/parliament in finalizing the constitution-making process and implementing the new constitution.
Under the direct supervision of the Project Manager the Sr. Administrative & Finance Assistant will be responsible for supporting the Project Manager on administrative and financial matter.
