Nepal - Millennium Development Goals Progress Report 2013
PDF File Size: 3.01 MB | Download   
For last 13 years, Millennium Development Goals(MDGs) have helped consolidate the international development agenda that once looked factious as different countries and development partners tried different approaches. The MDGs could
be viewed as the most effective anti-poverty campaign in history, bringing together governments and development partners to achieve a set of indicators that were measurable and ultimately sought to reduce poverty—improving quality of life, especially for the poorest of the poor. Now as the deadline inches closer, assessing progress and identifying remaining gaps should rightly be the main agenda we address. The countdown to 2015 presents an opportunity for the Government, the UN system and development partners to celebrate success as well as find ways to accelerate progress where Nepal is likely to fall behind. As this Nepal MDGs Progress Report 2013 points out, the Government of Nepal’s commitment to achieving MDGs, coupled with required policy reforms has borne fruit. Nepal is on track and is likely to achieve most of its MDG targets, despite the prolonged political instability. The targets for poverty reduction,
maternal mortality, and boys and girls enrollment in primary education are either achieved or likely to be achieved. Even in areas where Nepal is lagging behind, particularly in sanitation, it has already internalized an acceleration
framework in the form of the MDG Acceleration Framework (MAF) to mobilize
adequate resources to expedite progress by 2015. This Report provides updated status of progress since 2010, identifies unfinished agenda for remaining time and anew agenda for beyond 2015. This Report draws lessons from Nepal’s nearly
one and half decades of experience with MDGs. It goes further and underscores importance of decentralized governance, community mobilization, and targeted programs to achieve and sustain social targets—while offering solutions to ensure full employment and eliminate hunger in a sustained manner. The Report also delves into opportunities for economic growth and increasing trade to employment and wealth generation. While highlighting progress, Report also raises alarm over certain critical issues, such as growing disparity and a high level of exclusion within Nepali society. It cautions on the vulnerability of the Nepali economy, including dependence on remittance. Report calls for more investment in employment generating activities, including agriculture and tourism. In the run up to 2015, this Report offers a comprehensive look at Nepal’s efforts to meet MDGs, and gaps that are likely to constrain further progress.
