#localgovernance

MOST RECENT

We visited City of Takoma Park, MD - Municipal Government and interacted with Mayor, City Manager, Staffs and Youth Council members. To strengthen the local governance system in Nepal, we can learn many initiatives and approaches from Takoma City Council.
In 2013, Takoma Park became the first U.S. City to lower it's voting age from 18 to 16.
The Takoma Park Youth Council, established by the Takoma Park City Council, provides an opportunity fy the youth of Taking Park to acquire a greater knowledge of and appreciation for local government through active participation in the system.

Pathalgadi is an age old traditional practice among the Munda tribe of Jharkhand where they erect a stone on different life events such as death of a person, unnatural death of a person, excommunicating a person from the society and to mark the boundaries of a village. This practice is deeply enrooted in the culture of the Munda tribe. Interestingly now the tribals are evoking the age told tradition to ascertain their rights safeguarded by constitutional provisions to remind the state to implement PESA Act 1996. One can see the blend of culture of a tribe and constitution of India.

We went to the great Manchester High School, 1 or 2 years apart - participated in clubs & activities, doing our part to make our school, communities & parishes better. Went our separate ways for years to pursue further studies & work to do our part to make our communities, parishes & country better. Now, we run into each other at conferences, meetings & events geared toward making our communities, parishes & country better.

When you're faced with the decision to step outside your comfort zone, which will you choose: courage or comfort?

Why is women's participation in politics so low? What are the barriers that stop them from taking on leadership roles? Have reservations for women helped increase active participation in local government?

Karachi’s Municipal Office.
What’s so tempting about representing Karachi is the revenue it generates. Arif Hassan says a centralised governance module would work for PPP whereas a decentralised module would work for Urdu speaking parties in Karachi.
Similarly, he says political parties won’t solve their issues which results in abysmal local governance in the city because political parties largely focus on vote and constituencies than governance.
