The IFAD Interim Evaluation of the Hills Leasehold Forestry and Forage Development Project
(HLFFDP) is being conducted as a mandatory exercise prior to the consideration of a second phase of the project. The principal objective of the Interim Evaluation is to assess the project according to the main criteria set out in the IFAD Methodological Framework for Evaluations, namely 1) the impact on rural poverty, 2) the performance of the project, and 3) the performance of project partners.
An IFAD Mission conducted field visits in Nepal from March 13 to March 31, 2003. In
Kathmandu, the Mission met with representatives of the project implementing agencies , bilateral and multilateral donors, research institutions, NGOs and the civil society. 1 In the field, the Mission interacted with members of more than 50 leasehold groups and intergroups in all ten project districts as well as with members of ten cooperatives and field staff of the project line agencies.
Nepal has a population of 23.9 million (mid-2002), an annual population growth of 2.4% and a gross national income per capita of USD 250 (2001). Around 81% of the economically active population live in rural areas and depend on subsistence farming. Official poverty estimates state that 42% of the population are poor. This is paralleled by the high prevalence of child malnutrition (54% of children from 0 to 5 years are short for their age).2 Between 1995 and 2000, the GDP growth rate was hovering around 4.9% (against a target of 6% set by the National Planning Commission) but due mainly to rapid population increase, the average growth in income per capita was only 2.3%. The agricultural sector grew by a meagre 2.5% in constant price terms, against 7% for non-agricultural
sectors.3 While growth has been sluggish, inflation has fallen substantially from an average of 6.5 between 1996 and 2000 to 2.5 in 2000-2001 and nominal lending interest rates have declined. The Government of Nepal is still heavily dependent on aid, in spite of a reduction of Official Development Assistance as a percentage of government expenditures and Gross National Income during the 1990s (respectively from 70% to 43% and from 12% to 7% between 1990 and 1999).
