This study report on Municipal Finance Framework for the National Urban Development
Strategy-Nepal intends to develop financing framework for urban infrastructure covering the
Own Source Revenue (OSR), Inter-Governmental Fiscal Transfer (IGFT) and Borrowings to
leverage revenue surplus and government grants to multi-year infrastructure investments
required for sustainable and decent urban development of Nepal. This report, while primarily
based on the infrastructure-financing gap estimated by the National Urban Development
Strategy (NUDS), makes an updated assessment of the urban financing need in line with the
added number of Municipalities in the recent years.
