Nepal is characterized by low levels of human development and incomes. According to UNDP Human Development Report 2006, Nepal ranks 138 among 177 nations in terms of the Human Development Index, 156 in terms of GDP per capita in Purchasing Power Parity (PPP$). Both indicators rank the Nepal the lowest among its neighbors. Nepal experienced a turbulent socio-economic situation during the 11 year insurgency, which cost an estimated 13,000 lives an inflicted considerable physical, psychological, social and economic damage. The historic agreement of November 2006 between the Seven Party Alliance (SPA) and the Nepal Communist Party (Maoists) paved the way for a promising opportunity to achieve lasting peace and address the underlying causes of the conflict. It has also opened a window of opportunity for Agriculture and rural development.
Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, providing livelihood for more than 80 percent of the population and accounting for some 40 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Industrial activities are dominated by the processing of agricultural products including jute, sugarcane, tobacco and grains. Nepal is vulnerable to several types of natural disasters such as droughts, floods, landslides, windstorms, hailstorms, cold waves, disease epidemics, glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF), fires and earthquakes. Drought, hailstorms, floods and landslides are by far the most serious ones and the most recurrent natural disasters,annually causing significant material and human losses. The Mission assessed the 2007 wheat and barley production, which were being harvested in many parts of the country in March and April. Prospects for both crops are favorable and output is forecast at above average levels due to timely and sufficient rainfall during the winter season of 2006/07 and no significant damages by hailstorms and other disasters.
