Accountability Lab Nepal was the first of our network labs to open in 2012. The passionate team has run a widely-supported Integrity Icon campaign annually since then and expanded its work in migrant rights and budget transparency through our Civic Action Teams.

Integrity Icon: The five Integrity Icons of 2019 were celebrated at a ceremony in Kathmandu which attracted more than 500 guests. They are Prem Bahadur Darai, Gyanendra Kumar Mishra, Punya Prabha Devkota, Kajiman Rai, and Iswar Subedi who work across the sectors of education, conservation, health and safety.

Integrity School: The second cohort for the team’s Integrity School was hosted at the Open Gov Hub in Kathmandu in late November. Thirteen young government officials, along with 8 previous fellows, participated in a 3-day training session on practicing integrity through innovation, values-shifting and trendsetting. Around 100 guests from varied sectors were also present to celebrate the participants’ graduation from the first cohort 

Civic Action Teams: Working with communities to close the loop on accountability challenges related to the earthquakes, migration and budget expenditures. For the past two years, AL Nepal has been growing its work in the field of migration, and has seen increasing evidence of how local governments are starting to take migration issues in their communities more seriously.

Accountability Incubator: Recruitment for the 2020 cohort was focused on attracting applications from young people interested in the fields of local governance, disaster response or management and gender rights.

Film School for Women: Training and supporting young women in filmmaking and visual storytelling on accountability and good governance issues. The team ran  fellowship applications for the Gender, Peace and Accountability Edition of the school – made possible by the N-Peace Award won by the Lab in October.

OpenGovHub (Kathmandu): A fully-equipped co-working, community and innovation space.

Integrity Icon Nepal wishes all of you a very safe and happy Dashain. Let us remember to be accountable and ensure the safety of ourselves and our loved ones and enjoy Dashain behind closed doors this year. Stay safe and happy. 🥳
