PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
The Government of Nepal has enacted major plans to strengthen scientific
research and development in order to bolster economic and social progress, but
the country still faces significant challenges in science and technology, including improving science and technology education at universities, according to the UNESCO Science Report 2010. The Report will be launched worldwide on 10 November to mark World Science Day for Peace and Development 2010. Assessing the status of science worldwide, it also includes an analysis of the science sector in Nepal, looking at trends and developments that have shaped scientific research, innovation and higher education here over the past five years. The report shows that the Government of Nepal has increased its focus on
scientific research and development (R&D) in recent years recognizing its
importance in helping relieve poverty. The report stresses the high priority given to R&D in two of Nepal’s major development plans: the Tenth Plan (2002-2007) for poverty reduction and the Three Year Interim Development Plan (2007- 2010) acknowledging the potential contribution by science and technology (S&T) to alleviate poverty.
