Employment- Led Growth in Nepal
PDF File Size: 291 KB | Download   
This note to the National Planning Commission of Nepal discusses ways in which to accommodate new entrants to the labour market while, at the same time, to diminish the level of under-employment. The analysis represents the first phase of our work on employment-led growth in Nepal, and the present phase is in two parts. In the first part, the data used are based on Nepal’s official statistics. The analysis captures the number of new entrants to the labour market and the “conversion” of working poor into “productive jobs”.2 The definition of the latter – “productive” – is any job that is above the national poverty line. The international extreme poverty line of 1.25 US dollars per day for the worker and dependent household members will then be brought into play in the second part of the analysis. Many things define a productive job. For the sake of simplicity, our sole criterion is income. As noted,we use the Nepal poverty data, which is based on household consumption, and, in addition, we offer an alternative, but also consumption-based, World Bank / ILO source of data on working poor in Nepal.
