Asian Development Bank and Nepal: Fact Sheet
ADB’s country partnership strategy for Nepal seeks to address the country’s infrastructure bottlenecks in energy, transport, and urban facilities, while building human capital.
Since 1966, ADB has approved assistance totaling $5.23 billion for Nepal. In partnership with the Government of Nepal and other stakeholders, ADB has helped reduce poverty and raise incomes for subsistence farmers, marginalized women, and socially excluded Dalit and other indigenous communities.
In line with government priorities, ADB will continue to support Nepal in achieving accelerated and inclusive growth by building infrastructure, developing human capital, and transforming agriculture. The bulk of ADB assistance will go to infrastructure for transport, energy generation and distribution, and urban services. ADB will support the development of human capital through its support to schools (mainly infrastructure) and the country’s skills development project.
