Inclusive Local Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan (ILEDS&AP) for the years 2078-82 were developed through extensive collaboration with municipal stakeholders to foster inclusive economic development in JSMC. These plans prioritize low-carbon growth and climate resilience while focusing on training and outreach to enhance the involvement of women and marginalized communities in the workforce. 

The primary objectives include rebuilding in a more sustainable and eco-friendly manner, encompassing short-term interventions and medium- to long-term strategies. The plans for JSMC specifically target cultural tourism, agriculture, and trade, leveraging the city’s rich Mithila heritage. The ILEDS&APs have received endorsement from JSMC and were shared with new municipal leadership in 2023, aligning with their GRID-based planning for the upcoming fiscal year.
