Abstract:
Highlights: 1.The peace process in Nepal, which began in 2006 and ended a decade-long civil conflict, is gradually moving forward. The Constituent Assembly elected in May 2008 declared Nepal a federal republic. The Assembly is expected to promulgate a new constitution in 2012. 2.The population was 26.6 million in 2011;an additional 1.9 million lived and worked abroad. The annual population growth rate is 1.4 per cent. The national poverty incidence decline to approximately 25 per cent in 2011.From 2006-2011, the total fertility rate declined from 3.1 children per woman to 2.6. The contraceptive prevalence rate for modern methods has stagnated at 43.2 per cent. 3. UNFPA support to Nepal, which began in 1971, has evolved in response to the changing national context. An evaluation of the sixth country programme, 2008-2012, cited a number of achievements. The programme helped to: (a)position UNFPA within the health-sector programme; (b) enhance the national response to gender-based violence by working with United Nations organizations and other donors;DP/FPA/CPD/NPL/7 and (c) implement the population and housing census. 4.The programme will support national efforts to improve the sexual and reproductive health of the most marginalized adolescent girls and women. To achieve this goal, the programme will build national capacity and strengthen policy dialogue for evidence-based planning and resource allocation at the national level and in 18 districts that have made slow progress in achieving ICPD goals. 5. In addition to the UNFPA country office in Kathmandu, there are three regional support offices, which provide field-focused technical assistance and monitoring to district based staff in 18 districts. The Asia and Pacific regional office will assist in identifying technical resources and provide quality assurance.
