Policy Advice

Madhav Kumar Nepal, former Prime Minister

We have advised the former PM on radio education, the establishment of think tanks, re-energising state industries and the use of software in democratic party politics. We also gave advice on communications to the Democratic Party Alliance during the closing stages of the civil war.

Pushpa Kamal Dahal, former Prime Minister

Prachanda gave his full support whilst PM to our importing medical equipment without duties and said he would definitely support our goal of establishing a national radio station dedicated to primary, secondary and adult education. He agreed that we should be granted a broadcasting licence without charge.

Girija Prasad Koirala, former Prime Minister

In the last days of his administration, we managed to put our case for radio education to an elder statesman of Nepali politics and it turned out that he had learnt English using a correspondence course which was part paper and part telephone-based. He saw the logic of our Radio Guru project and asked us to go ahead.

Sher Bahadur Deuba, former Prime Minister

Sher Deuba found our talks on strengthening democratic forms, radio-based education and turning around the state industries of interest. He threw his support behind our efforts to import an ambulance and offered to help us overcome any bureacratic obstacles.

Pradeep Nepal, former Education Minister

Pradeep Nepal has been a long standing listener to our ideas and supporter of our work. As one of the leading intellectuals in Nepali politics, we very much value his time and ideas.


The Mountain Trust continues to maintain links with other academics in the UK, Nepal and elsewhere in order to channel new - and we hope useful - ideas into Nepal.
