Towards Integrated Strategies for Alleviating Rural Poverty in Nepal
PDF File Size: 887 KB | Download   
Poverty in Nepal is widespread, deep-rooted and endemic. Nepal's per capita GDP of US$ 160 places her among the poorest countries in the world, which is further perpetuated by accelerated population growth. Other social indicators like life expectancy at birth, child mortality, and literacy rate all confirm Nepal's degree of extreme poverty and deprivation. Over 42 per cent of the population are estimated to be absolutely poor, i.e., unable to meet even the minimum basic needs. Continued inability to attain sustained economic growth in excess of that of population has resulted in stagnation in per capita income. This situation has persisted despite several decades of development efforts which are also constrained by the permanent disadvantage of meager resource endowment, rugged terrain and land locked location. The problem is further worsened by weak institutions, poor and unstable development strategies and inability to implement development programmes properly.
