In 2004 and 2005, the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FNCCI) implemented the first anti‑corruption project involving the private sector in Nepal.
Despite the novelty of a supply‑side intervention, however, the effort has not manage to survive the termination of DFID funding. This U4 Practice Insight explores how local ownership, through a combination of actions, inactions, and broader political factors, can dissipate at different stages of the project cycle. Since donor support ended, not a single anti‑corruption activity has been continued by the FNCCI.
