Nepal Human Development Report 2009 - State Transformation and Human Development
PDF File Size: 1.7 MB | Download   
Previous Nepal Human Development Reports of many other organizations have successively mapped underlying patterns of exclusion, disadvantage and
vulnerability in Nepal. While the proportion of Nepalis living in extreme poverty has lowered over the last decade, these underlying patterns of inequity have not changed significantly. If the Comprehensive Peace Agreement is any
guide, these same patterns appear to have fueled the decade-long insurgency. The terms of the peace as spelled out in this historic document, are anchored in the principles of rights, access and equity. The country has launched itself on a process of profound transformation, where everything is up for negotiation
- the structure of the state, the symbols of nationhood, the rights of the citizen - within a pre-agreed and hopefully peaceful framework. Reading peace agreement and many of successive agreements through a human development lens, one has the sense that these underlying patterns have now, finally, truly arrived at ‘centre stage’. And that the key decisions ahead, will ultimately be measured by extent to which they break these longstanding patterns. Patterns entrenched over hundreds of years will not easily be broken however. Over the
coming months and years, the Nepali people and their leaders face an array of decisions with long-term consequences. Not every option guarantees a good 'human development outcome' and in the background will remain the peace process itself, which will need protection at all costs. Nepal will find its own formula for securing the peace and advancing this complex agenda. This year's Nepal Human Development Report, therefore, explores some of decisions ahead with a view to better understanding their potential impact on Nepal's human development status. As usual, this year’s human development report also provides a wealth of data and information on the HDI and other related indices by 13 sub-regions of Nepal and by 11 caste and ethnic groups. The spatial and social canvas of the HDI continues to indicate pockets of prosperity alongside deep pockets of poverty and deprivation. The variation in the level of human development between caste and ethnic groups is larger than those of regions and sub-regions, implying the need for refocusing our attention and revisiting our targeting criteria to vulnerable caste and ethnic groups in a region.
