ADB-Nepal Partnership Strategy

Under the country partnership strategy, 2013-2017, for Nepal, ADB will support the government’s development objective of accelerated, sustainable, inclusive economic growth.

In line with its inclusive growth framework, ADB will pursue faster growth in economic opportunities through investments in infrastructure. It will seek to deliver access to economic opportunities through projects and programs in education, including skills development; water supply and sanitation; and rural infrastructure.

Mainstreaming gender equality and social inclusion and supporting related reforms will also improve access to basic services.

ADB will promote social protection through work on disaster risk management, skills development, and knowledge partnerships.

Regional cooperation integration work will be emphasized through investments anchored on the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) program.

For 2015-2017, ADB operations in Nepal will focus on the following priority sectors:

  • energy;
  • transport (road and air);
  • water and other urban infrastructure and services;
  • education; and
  • agriculture, natural resources, and rural development.
