This Regional Synthesis Report prepared by Asia Foundation, brings together information collected
through country diagnostic studies conducted by The Asia Foundation in partnership with civil society organizations in
Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The country diagnostic studies analyse the state of
citizens’ access to information, and the implementation and use of RTI legislation in these countries.
The findings from the country studies were presented at a regional workshop in Kathmandu for
feedback and discussion of recommendations for country-specific and regional interventions to
improve access to information in South Asia.
