Among 15 wards, 4 wards were chosen based on characteristic features of dense urban core, traditional settlement, cultural and natural heritage, and remoteness of the place. The second workshop was held in the multipurpose hall of the ward office of Chandragiri Municipality, Ward No. 9. The ward falls in the cultural heritage settlement Machchhegaun, and possesses unique features of traditional practices, with presence of both compact and new settlements. A total of 45 participants including 15 females, were present at the consultation workshop including local elected representatives, municipal and ward office staff, community leaders, consumer committee, representatives from schools, women cooperatives, social organizations and community groups.

The program was facilitated by Ms. Bhadra Aryal, Senior Officer at Chandragiri Municipality and the focal contact person for the project from the municipality. Dr. Pratap Chhatkuli, Team Leader for the project presented on Sustainable Development Goals, indicators and contextualisation of the goals at local, municipal and ward level.
