Mr Dipak Gyawali

Dipak Gyawali is Academician of the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology. By profession, he is a hydroelectric power engineer (Moskovsky Energetichesky Institute, USSR, 1979) as well as a political economist studying resource use (Energy and Resources Group, University of California, Berkeley, 1986). In 2002/2003 he served as Nepal's Minister of Water Resources responsible for power, irrigation and flood control. As a Cultural Theorist upholding the idea of institutional pluralism and its "three-legged policy stool", he was able to initiate the "communitization" of electricity in rural Nepal, the "internal unbundling" of the monopoly electric utility, as well as the privatization of a generation component, which to date in Nepal's history is its largest privatization free from any controversy. He also initiated a very unique indigenous review of the World Commission on Dams report in light of existing Nepali laws, as well as a new irrigation policy that would increase the say of farmers' groups in providing irrigation services. He chairs Interdisciplinary Analysts, a research firm specializing in quantitative social science as well as the newly founded liberal arts college, the Nepâ School of Social Sciences and Humanities. He also directs research at the non-profit Nepal Water Conservation Foundation on alternative local water management.
