This report presents not only the level of, and trends in, poverty, but also its composition by dimension. The report shows that Nepal has made significant progress in reducing MPI. In terms of poverty trends, the incidence of multidimensional poverty nationally fell from 30.1 percent in 2014 to 17.4 percent in 2019. In 2019, the MPI was 0.074. This means that 3.1 million people left poverty in five years. The intensity of multidimensional poverty also significantly decreased from 44.2 percent to 42.5 percent. Across indicators, the highest number of people are deprived in housing materials, clean cooking fuel, years of schooling, assets and nutrition. Considering the indicator weights, years of schooling and nutritional deprivations contribute most to ongoing multidimensional poverty in Nepal. The report highlights that 28 percent of rural dwellers are MPI poor as compared with 12.3 percent in urban areas. Over half of Nepal’s poor population live in rural areas. Moreover, across provinces, Karnali Province has the highest MPI poor (39.5 percent of people) and followed by 25.3 percent in Sudurpashchim Province, and 24.2 percent in Province 2. In Gandaki Province 9.6 percent of people are multidimensionally poor, while in Bagmati Province it is only 7.0 percent.
