 Development Effectiveness Brief 2014

Nepal: Development Effectiveness Brief 2014

Since 1996, ADB assistance to Nepal is strongly focused on reducing poverty by promoting inclusive economic growth in a country that remains poor, predominantly rural, and affected by ethnic and socioeconomic divisions. Other areas of assistance include social development, good governance and capacity building, and environmental sustainability.

ADB follows innovative and flexible approaches to implementing projects and programs to foster an environment of inclusion and to support the most marginalized groups, such as Dalit communities, indigenous peoples, and women.

The country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Nepal and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
