|In June 2010, the AusAID and UNDP signed a cost sharing agreement to support establishment of Electoral Education and Information Centre (EEIC) in premises of the Election Commission of Nepal (ECN) in Kathmandu. The Centre will have three-fold purposes- I) an educational facility, II) a training facility and III) a knowledge centre, for voter education, information dissemination and research and development. |
The National Electoral Education Centre of Australian Election Commission (AEC) facility in Canberra, Australia presents an excellent model for the EEIC to follow and can be a potential source of advice, resources and programme supports.
Since the concept of EEIC is new in Nepal, ECN needs technical support during its establishment and initial phase of operations. A Concept Paper on EEIC was prepared in 2009 and a Program Plan for 2011 was submitted by an International Consultant in December 2010. Based on those documents along with the project document, the International Consultant will advise and assist the ECN in establishment and operationalization of the planned EEIC.
