Employment Sector: The Dynamics Of Employment, The labour Market And The Economy In Nepal
PDF File Size: 906 KB | Download   
The last two decades have been marked by much political tumult in Nepal, with many constitutional amendments and changes of government. More recently, the transformation of Nepal to a federal republic in 2007-2008 has altered the nature of politics in the country – though political instability remains. Economic growth has been slow in comparison with neighbouring countries, with GDP growth under 4.5 per cent p.a. between 2001-2002 to 2009- 2010. Given an expanding population, average income per capita has risen at a sluggish 2 percent p.a., and is the lowest in South Asia. Though remittances from emigrants have injected resources into the economy, the poverty incidence remains high with 30.8 per cent of the population living under the national poverty line. Since unemployment ranks at only 2.1 per cent, the main contributor to the high poverty figure has been working poverty – the lack of productive employment. The present study offers an employment diagnostic analysis of Nepal. The overall objective is to understand the deficiency of productive employment and to identify critical constraints to inclusive and sustainable growth.
