The main objective of this programme is to enhance adaptive capacity of vulnerable groups including women to cope with impact of climate change by adopting integrated environment, climate and disaster resilient planning at local level. The specific objectives of the programme are;

  • To enhance capacity of Local bodies and local community people on climate change adaptation, disaster management and environment conservation
  • To mainstream environment conservation, climate change adaptation and disaster management in local planning and budgeting process of Local bodies
  • To declare environment friendly household, tole and ward of  respective local bodies


Vision Mission Goal


The vision of EFLGP is to establish environmental governance and create a sustainable environment-friendly society at household, village, municipality and district levels.


The overall goal of the programme is to develop climate adaptive and environment friendly rural and urban communities through environment sensitive local governance to contribute in poverty reduction.



Indicative Activities

1.   Enhanced consciousness and capacity of vulnerable people, local bodies, line agencies and CSOs on climate adaptive and EFLG system



2. Adopted integrated environment, climate and disaster resilient planning, budgeting and financing system at national and local level



1.   Improved livelihood of communities adapting climate, environment ,and disaster resilient actions







Owing to scattered environmental management efforts and its ineffectiveness, the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MoFALD) realized that it is necessary to integrate environmental consideration into local development plan and budget preparation process. In this backdrop, MoFALD prepared Environment Friendly Local Governance Framework (EFLGF) and was endorsed by the Government of Nepal in 2013. Based on the EFLG Framework, the MoFALD developed Environment Friendly Local Governance Programme (EFLGP) and implemented in 14 Districts, 54 Municipalities and 60 Village Development Committees under broader Local Governance and Community Development Program Framework since December 2014.  This programme is financially supported by Department of International Development (DFID).

It aims to implement the Programme by mobilizing grass root level social mobilizers funneling all the local governance and community development activities planned under MoFALD. The Programme is being launched in four cross cutting areas including environment safeguard, waste management, climate change adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk management. Since EFLGP covers most of the areas envisaged by LGCDP II, the indicators identified by EFLGP will be addressed by this Programme. All the development activities related to Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) launched in community develop area by different line partners such as NGOs and the private sectors will be coordinated and implemented through one window system. All the line agencies in the local level will also be coordinated and mobilized in the local level activities. Capacity development is one of the main activities visualized as a part of all the programmes.

This Programme is originated from the MoFALD intending to implement it through the grass root level and protect the deteriorated environment and safeguard the poor and vulnerable people from the climate change and related risks. Department for International Development (DFID) is interested to support this Programme and signed an agreement with the GoN through the LGCDP-II. This Programme is named as Environment Friendly Local Governance Programme (EFLGP) that designed to combat with climate change effect, disaster management and environment conservation aiming to build and climate change resilient society and protect environmental deterioration.

Three types of indicators have been designed – advanced, basic and special.  There are 163 “advanced”, 139 “basic” and 42 “special” indicators.  The indicators for household, settlement, wards, VDC/Municipality, DDC and public offices have been identified in consultation with the wider stakeholders ranging from field level to policy makers.Indicatros of EFLGP

Environment Friendly Local Governance Framework (EFLG-F) 2070

The Environment Friendly Local Governance (EFLG) concept has been evolved with the notion that sustainable environment management should begin from the household level. Over the last few years, there has been considerable progress in poverty reduction. However, the sustainable use and management of natural resources also require greater focus. Building on the success of the Local Government and Community Development Programme (LGCDP) - Phase I and using Phase II as a vehicle, the EFLG agenda seeks to reform and strengthen local governance processes and environmental management across all levels.

On October 9, 2013, the Government of Nepal endorsed the EFLG Framework. The objective of the EFLG Framework is to mainstream pro-poor, inclusive, and gender responsive environmental, climate change, and disaster risk reduction criteria into local government policies, plans, systems, structures, mechanisms and working procedures. In addition, it intends to make everyone, right from the grassroots level, responsible for sustainable environment development, promote coordination and cooperation in environment friendly development activities and localize the environmental agenda and thereby creating ownership. In addition, the EFLG Framework helps local governments to design and integrate environmental activities into the 14- step planning process. Various indicators have been developed with the premise that it helps put in place a results based monitoring mechanism.
