PDF File Size: 968 KB | Download   
The Central Region (CR), one of the five development regions of Nepal, spans all three eco zones – mountain, hill and plains. Headquartered in Hetauda (Makwanpur district), the CR comprises three administrative zones (Bagmati, Narayani and Janakpur), 19 districts, 1,199 Village Development Committees (VDCs), one metropolitan (Kathmandu), two submetropolitans (Lalitpur, Birgunj) and 17 municipalities. The population density in the CR is 293 inhabitants per square kilometer, which is the highest among all five development regions and significantly above the national average of 157 inhabitants per square kilometer. The CR is home of various ethnic communities for example Newar, Tamang and Thami and its inhabitants represent different religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. The Human Development Index (HDI) of the CR (0.531) is higher than the national average of 0.509. However, the CR HDI excluding Kathmandu is 0.489, only slightly above the Mid- and Far-Western Development Regions.
