News from Nepal: A Quarterly Newsletter of the Nepal Resident Mission of the Asian Development Bank (September 2013)


ADB is one of the major development partners supporting Nepal’s school education reforms through various assistance such as Primary Education Development Project (1991-2000), Secondary Education Support Program (2002-2010), and Teacher Education Project (2001-2009). Since 2006, ADB has adopted the sector-wide approach (SWAp) through the Education Support Cluster Programs and the School Sector Program to support the government’s Education for All and School Sector Reform Plan (SSRP), respectively. In doing so, the key focus of ADB has been on the implementation of key policy reforms and actions to realize the objectives and outcomes in the areas of access and equity, efficiency and quality, and institutional capacity building set forth in the SSRP. This issue of NRM newsletter focuses on ADB’s assistance in the education sector in recent times.
