WFP Nepal Country Brief 2018
PDF File Size: 699 KB | Download   
The past decade has been particularly transformative for the country, following the end of conflict in 2006 and a lengthy political transition as the country underwent a process of drafting a new constitution. The Constitution of Nepal, adopted in 2015, established the country as a federal democratic republic, divided into three spheres government (1 federal, 7 provincial and 753 local level governments), shifting the locus of political and executive power from central level to local-government levels. Notably, the new constitution enshrined food as a fundamental right of every citizen, with inclusion of a Right to Food Act. The GDP per capita is USD 707 and 25 percent of the population lives on USD 1.25 per day or less. Poverty in the Far West development region (Karnali Zone) is the highest, with 46 percent of people below the poverty line.
Frequent natural disasters negatively affect livelihoods and food security. Nepal’s vulnerability to high food prices, especially in remote mountain areas, further exacerbates food insecurity. Challenging and isolated geography, natural disasters, civil unrest and lack of infrastructure complicate efforts to improve livelihoods, establish functioning markets and transport food.
