This is the Report on the Science, Research and Technology in Nepal commissioned to RONAST by UNESCO, Nepal. The Report reviews the status of Science and Technology (S&T) with specific goal to identify trends, constraints, and gaps wherein international collaboration may be fruitful to Nepal.For source materials, RONAST used its previous work on the topic and updated them with recent literature review and questionnaire survey of major sectors to prepare a draft report. The report was presented before an expert group for input. This final draft is the result of this process. For the purpose of this Report, science has been taken to include the traditional disciplines within the mandate of RONAST, the so-called hard sciences, and not behavioral sciences such as Economics and Political Sciences or the Social Sciences. Technology has been defined as enhancements of human capacity, in this Report, those enhancements facilitated by sciences.S&T in vocational education started early to provide technicians in revenue generating
sectors like forestry, agriculture and engineering as well as health but with the establishment of the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT), there are now 18 technical schools and 170 private technical institutes offering S&T trainings. S&T in higher education reviews the status in the 4 universities. By far most of the teaching manpower (40%), students (75%), and resources are still concentrated with TU since it is the oldest, most resourced, and the cheapest because it is a public institution. The other
universities are private and offer programs in high market demand such medicine and engineering at high fees and at better investment to student ratios. Within TU, there is a disparity in investments in applied sciences such as Agriculture, Forestry, Medicine or Engineering and the Basic Sciences such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Statistics. The result is that well endowed S&T (Rs 5.7 billion in 15 years) institutes offer international quality education while funds starved departments just churn out numbers who are not easily employed.
