The federal, provincial local governments are committed to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the inclusive and long-term development of the country and they are creating an enabling environment for fulfilling the SDG commitments. Public financial management and practices in Nepal needs better alignment with sustainable development goals and fostering long-term quality spending.
