The Government of Nepal runs a varied portfolio of social protection programs
consisting of social insurance, cash and in kind social assistance programs, and various labor market programs. The fiscal cost of the current portfolio of SP programs in Nepal reaches 2.5 percent of GDP (2011-12). The lion’s share (about 1.5 percent) of this spending is on public sector pensions. Programs that can be classified as social assistance programs, usually intended to assist the poor and the vulnerable, amount to about 0.9 percent of GDP altogether.
