Updated yearly, this ADB Country Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Nepal as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.

ADB has worked in partnership with the Government of Nepal since the country joined ADB as a founding member in 1966. The Nepal Resident Mission has enhanced its collaboration with key development partners through shared sector and thematic assessments, strategic alignments, and implementation of programs in support of the government’s own development priorities.

ADB’s resident mission coordinates closely with other development partners in the formulation of its country partnership strategy and in the annual country programming exercise, which explore cofinancing opportunities; and conducts annual portfolio reviews with the government, the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and the World Bank. ADB is a partner in the donor-supported, sector-wide approach group in the education sector.
