The devastating 2015 earthquake has severely hindered Nepal’s economic recovery and growth. Major economic sectors have been severely impacted, undermining development gains achieved over the last five years.
Critical challenges remain for Nepal to pursue a broad based economic growth strategy to reduce poverty and improve overall human development due to a number of factors, including inadequately planned urbanization, environmental and climate risks, poor land, labor and capital productivities, and inadequate and poor infrastructure.
The Government of Nepal (GoN) has a number of policies and plans focused to achieve green growth including the periodic three year National Development Plan, Low Carbon Economic Development Strategy, the LDC graduating strategy, and the NDC and the Socio-economic Development Strategy (SEDS). Implementation of these policies and plans will require institutional strengthening, an improved regulatory environment, implementation capacity, and financing at all levels, particularly at the sub-national level where poverty is concentrated.
