This report present Nepal's official national Multi- dimensional Poverty Index (MPI)using latest data from Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2014.MPI includes multiple indicators related to health,education and living standards.
Our computations show that 28.6 percent of Nepal's population is multidimensionally poor. The indicators that contribute most to multidimensional poverty in Nepal are under-nutrition and household that lack any member who has completed five years of schooling. A unique features is that the Nepal MPI can be disaggreated by the newly formed seven provinces of Nepal. Naturally,the rural-urban is evident with 7 % of urban population and 33% of rural population being multi-dimensionslly poor.
We find that Providence 6 and 2 have the highest rate of multidimensional poverty with every second person being multidimensionally poor(50%) followed by provinces 5 and 7 (approximately 30 %) .
The major contributing indicators to overall poverty in Nepal and in rural Nepal are malnutrition and insufficient years of schooling. To keep up the momentum of these achievements will require ongoing efforts and political leadership in the coming years. Major investments in health and education will be necessary to lift the poorest of the poor out of multidimensional poverty. Further, in order to reduce regional inequalities across provinces, greater interventions for the poorest provinces are required.
