The Youth in Policy and Governance (YPG) fellowship program held its second camp, Camp-2, in Gandaki province, Nepal. Conducted by the Pokhara Research Center, with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy, the four-day program ended on February 19, 2023.
The aim of the program was to engage youth between the ages of 20 and 30 in law and public policy making. In response to the call for applications, 250 young people living in Gandaki province who were interested in social policy and good governance applied.
From the pool of applicants, 50 were selected for the first camp, and 26 were chosen to participate in Camp-2. Next, the Research Center will select 12 people from the 26 participants in the second camp. These 12 will be given the opportunity to work as knowledge assistants with members of the Gandaki Provincial Assembly as YPG Fellows for six months.
The Camp-2 program held in Gandaki province had 26 young participants. The program was one of several held by the Research Center under the YPG in other provinces such as Province 1 and Karnali Province.
Suzan Regmi, the Executive Director of the Research Center, stated that the YPG fellowship program aims to make youth aware of the policy-making process and good governance. The program is designed to develop and enhance the capabilities of the youth in the area of public policy and governance.
The YPG fellowship program is an excellent initiative that provides young people with an opportunity to engage in law and public policy-making, which is essential for the development of any country. Through such programs, young people can learn valuable skills and knowledge that can help them in their future careers.Conference Gandaki Pradesh Pokhara
