Nepal has an estimated population of 24.12 million and a population density of 169 persons/km2. The economy has undergone considerable changes over the last ten years. Following adoption of a liberal market-oriented economic policy and a number of reforms, the gross domestic product (GDP) growth averaged 4.9% between 1990 and 2001. However, growth has stalled considerably in the past three years because of the security situation, political instability and little progress in effectively addressing the main constraints on social, economic and political development. Nepal remains one of the least developed countries in the world by all major indicators. The gross national income (GNI) per capita of USD 230 (2002) is one of the lowest in the world. The country’s economy is characterized by a large agricultural sector and a small, but rapidly growing, informal urban economy. The agricultural sector employs around 65% of the economically active population, accounts for 41% of GDP (2002), and is the largest sector of the economy. Remittances play a major role as a source both of foreign exchange and of household income, particularly in the hill areas. Most households cultivate some land, but almost 70% of holdings are of less than one hectare. Further economic growth in Nepal will depend upon addressing long-standing social inequality; developing social and economic infrastructure; improving administrative and institutional performance; and, most important, bringing an end to the insurgency.
