PDF File Size: 3.52 MB | Download   
Nepal is passing through a major period of transition. The newly established federal structure provides opportunities and challenges, in both political and economic terms. Nepal has also announced its commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, declared its aspiration to graduate from a Least Developed Country by 2022 and become a Middle-Income Country by 2030. The new government appears determined to make economic growth and domestic job creation as a top priority.
The Fourteenth Three-Year Development Plan (2016/17-2018/19) prescribes a comprehensive strategy to achieve sustainable social and economic development and encompasses five areas of focus: (i) increase growth and employment through tourism, small and medium business and transformation of agriculture (ii) infrastructure development: energy, road, air transport, information, rural-urban and tri-lateral linkages (iii) sustainable human development through social security/protection (iv) promotion of good governance and human rights; and (v) promotion of gender equality, social inclusion, and environmental protection. Nepal’s vision sets a compelling stage for drawing together priorities and objectives to achieve more decent work while realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) is the main vehicle for delivery of ILO support to its member countries. DWCPs have two basic objectives. They promote decent work as a key component of national development strategies. At the same time they organise ILO knowledge, instruments, advocacy and cooperation at the service of tripartite constituents in a results-based framework to advance the Decent Work Agenda within the fields of comparative advantage of the Organization. Tripartism and social dialogue are central to the planning and implementation of a coherent and integrated ILO programme of assistance to constituents in member States.
The DWCP for Nepal (2018-2022), is formulated in collaboration with the tripartite constituents, is closely aligned to Nepal’s development priorities. It also reflects the priorities set out in United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for 2018-2022. and significantly contributes to UNDAF Priority One on sustainable and inclusive economic growth and is linked to Priority Two on social development. It also takes into consideration of the recommendations made by the internal review of the DWCP (2013-2017) and the findings of the DWCP diagnostic study conducted in October 2017.
