Issue Brief: Opening Up Access to Information on Transboundary River- Review of Proactive Disclosure of Information in Nepal

Posted On: 2015-06-17

Information, the power and medium to exercise democracy, is a fundamental human right. It is the right of every citizen to know about information held by public agencies. This right has been safeguarded in Nepal by the Right to Information Act 2007 which makes public bodies liable to disclose their information proactively and on the basis of requests for information filed by the public. This right empowers the public to question the status, process and results of different activies of public bodies and encourage transparency and accountability. This issue brief the second in a series of three summarizes the findings of a study conducted by Institute for Social and Environmental Transition  –  Nepal  (ISET-Nepal)  on  the  availability  and  accessibility  of  hydrological  data  and information on  the Kosi River  in Nepal.  Specifically,  this  issue brief  reviews and assesses  the extent  to which public authorities in Nepal are proactively releasing data and information related to the Kosi River Basin.
