Welcome

Hriti Foundation is a public policy think tank based in the Karnali Province of Nepal.

With the changed context of federalism, the sub-national governments have started the process of formulation of new policies. However, since these sub-national governments did not exist in the past and do not have prior experience that they can reflect on to employ these new powers endowed upon them, Hriti Foundation tapped this opportune moment to build a think tank to inform the policymakers and to connect the civil society with their representatives. Among the seven provinces of Nepal, Karnali, although the largest one with 10 districts and 79 local governments, is the most backward province both economically and geographically. Therefore, there remains huge prospect for development that Hriti aspires to capitalize upon. Up until now, the foundation has worked with more than 25 out of 40 provincial assembly members.
