The Human Development Index (HDI) of the WR (0.516) is slightly above the national average of 0.509. However, human development varies greatly across eco-zones (see diagram below). Similarly, the Human Poverty Index (HPI) ranges from 48% in the mountains to 36% in the Tarai with 32% in the hills7. In addition, the section on Gender and Social Inclusion below shows an unequal level of development across social groups.
