UNOPS mission is to expand the capacity of the UN system and its partners to implement peacebuilding, humanitarian and development operations that matter for people in need.

In Nepal, the country’s new constitution of 2015 set out a radical transition from a unitary to a federal state. Following local, provincial and federal elections in 2017 and National Assembly elections in February 2018, 761 local governments have now been established across the country. These are divided into 7 provinces, with newly drawn borders.
Progress establishing these new governments has varied across the country. While some subnational governments are fully formed and actively working to deliver services, infrastructure projects and policies, others are still struggling due to a lack of capacity, staffing and resources.
Federalism is one of DFID Nepal’s three ‘Big Changes’ for the future. It is DFID’s aim to see the federal constitution implemented and new relationships forged between politicians and citizens so more Nepali citizens have a stake in their country’s future through Empowered elected representatives; – Deliberative decision-making in the public interest; – A more representative state; – Stronger political accountability with active citizen and user engagement; and,  – Effective intergovernmental structures to promote peaceful contestation. 
In that context, DFID, through UNOPS PCU, will work to support the new sub-national governments through the provision of technical assistance, support to planning and implementation processes of sub-national governments, coordination of DFID Implementing Partners in the field and the provision of context analysis to inform conflict-sensitive programming.
Following the transition of Nepal into a federal structure, the context in which DFID will implement its work has become increasingly complex, with new governance structures at the Federal, Provincial and Local level, as well as newly emerging and fluid political and development dynamics and possible conflicts throughout the country. In this context, given DFID’s commitments to Do No Harm approaches, to Leave No-One Behind, to Safeguarding and to GESI, it is certain that DFID Programmes and Partners will require technical support to develop their capacities to adapt to the changed context. Additionally, following the closure of the DFID/GIZ Risk Management Office (RMO), which previously provided DFID partners with relevant capacity building, there is a clear need amongst DFID partners at all levels for a Conflict Sensitivity capacity building resource.  It is proposed that a Training Coordinator, with overall responsibility for designing and implementing Training Strategy, covering not only Conflict Sensitivity but also GESI, Safeguarding and DRR for DFID Partners (and possibly for other Donors); the Training Coordinator will also be responsible for working with Sub-National Government to define training needs (in relation to the abovementioned thematic areas), design and implement a training strategy to meet Sub-National Government needs
