Nepal: Skills for Employment
To reduce poverty and income inequality in the Nepal, it is vital to increase the employment rate and income level of workers, especially those belonging to marginalized groups.
To promote broad-based and inclusive social and economic growth through sustainable human development, the Government of Nepal in 2002 requested ADB to prepare a project to enhance technical education and vocational training (TEVT). Improved TEVT access and quality would open up income-earning opportunities to unskilled youth.
The Skills for Employment Project is aimed at increasing engagement in self-employment as well as wage and international employment. The expected outcome of the project was to increase opportunities for market-oriented, short-term (MOST) skills training.
