“Nepal has made a remarkable progress considering the difficult situation in the country in recent years”, asserts a new progress report on the Millennium
Development Goals launched today in Kathmandu, Nepal. However, conflict remains a major problem along with glaring issues of exclusion and discrimination which still exist among large sections of the country’s population. The report underscores a strong need to improve the efficiency and coordination of aid to ensure that it reaches the poorest regions and the most vulnerable groups. “This report is also a call to everyone to join hands with the common objective of promoting the well being of the Nepalese people by creating a level playing field for all citizens to participate fully in the development process,” said Dr. Shankar Sharma, Vice Chairman of the National Planning Commission. While the country overall witnessed a dramatic progress in cutting poverty from 42% in 1996 to 31% in 2004, this development was not equitable. The poorest region most affected by the conflict like the Midwestern region still has a poverty incidence almost 20% higher than that of the Central region. According to the report Nepal is likely to meet Goal#1 of halving the proportion of people living below the national poverty line by 2015. It is also likely that goal of reducing under-five mortality by two-thirds by 2015 will be met. Similarly the target of halving the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water is likely to be met with the situation fairly improving.
