Inclusive Local Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan (ILEDS&AP) for Butwal

Disclaimer: The ILEDS&AP is currently being implemented in Butwal.

The Inclusive Local Economic Development Strategy and Action Plans (ILEDS&APs) were prepared to promote inclusive economic development in the three target municipalities based on extensive engagement with municipal stakeholders. The plans emphasise low-carbon growth and climate-change resilience while promoting increased participation in the workforce by women and marginalised communities through training and outreach. In the ILEDS&APs, different sectors are targeted in the three municipalities for development according to each city’s economic and social relevance. In Butwal, the plans specifically target business tourism, agro-industry, trade and transport, given Butwal’s location at an important crossroads for commerce.
