CONCEPT PAPER ON PRSP/10th Plan
Abstract:
The PRSP/10th Plan being prepared by the National Planning Commission (NPC) provides a general framework for poverty reduction strategy within which all the stakeholders will act. The Plan will be evolved through a participatory process. The main objective of the PRSP/10th Plan is to identify the much-sought poverty reduction approach in Nepal. The key actions for the approach include policy changes, institutional reforms, and implementing targeted programs and projects. This definitely is not an easy task. Efforts are needed to formulate and implement appropriate strategies that will ensure the sustainability and effectiveness of the medium and long-term development projects. #Development

CONCEPT PAPER ON PRSP/10th Plan
Abstract:
Poverty in Nepal is widespread with about 38 percent of the population living below the nationally defined poverty line in 1999. However, if the definition of ‘US dollar a day’ poverty line is applied, which is often used for the purpose of making international comparison of poverty, then the incidence of poverty in Nepal turns out to be 37 percent. Nepal Living Standard Survey, 1996 conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics, however, estimated the incidence of poverty in Nepal to be about 42 percent (World Bank 1999). Large segments of the poor are hardcore poor barely eking out subsistence living on fragile and vulnerable ecosystems and large areas of the country lack even the most basic infrastructure. There are wide variations based on rural-urban divide, geography, ethnic group and occupational caste.
