Country Programme - Nepal (2013–2017)

Nepal is on track to achieve most of its Millennium Development Goal targets by 2015, but it remains one of the world’s poorest and least-developed countries. Political instability, limited economic growth, high prices and natural disasters have resulted in 6.7 million people living below the national poverty line – a quarter of the population. Poverty rates reach 42 percent in the mountains and 37 percent in the mid-western and far-western hills.
