Benefits of Nepal’s Child Grant for Current and Future Generations(November 2016)
PDF File Size: 395 KB | Download   
This policy brief draws on evidence from Nepal and around the world to show that an enhanced and expanded Child Grant can make a real difference to the lives of children and is a sound investment for the country’s long term social and economic development.
The early years are a critical time in a child’s development. Children’s brains develop at a rapid pace in the earliest years, but this slows with age. A lack of development in early life is therefore difficult to make up for in later years. Children exposed to good quality early stimulation have higher schooling outcomes and greater productivity in the job market when they reach adulthood. Childhood malnutrition cuts future earnings by at least 20 per cent, with one study suggesting that this could be as high as 66 per cent (Grantham McGregor, 2007; Hoddinott et al., 2011). The subsequent impact on a country’s economy is huge: malnutrition could decrease GDP by between 2 and 11 percent (World Bank, 2006; WFP & UN-ECLAC, 2007).
