Country Programme Document for Nepal
Abstract:
Nepal began a peace process in June 2006 after an 11-year internal conflict that resulted in an estimated 2 per cent annual decrease in gross domestic product (GDP). Average per capita GDP for 2004/2005 was $297. The population is estimated at 26 million, 31 per cent of whom live below the poverty line. Disparities in wealth, opportunities and access to basic services exist between regions, rural and urban areas, genders, castes and ethnic groups. Socially excluded groups include Dalits, Muslims, disadvantaged Janajatis, middle-caste Terai groups, women and the disabled. Life expectancy at birth is 63 years. Between 2001 and 2006, the total fertility rate declined from 4.6 to 3.1 per woman and the contraceptive prevalence rate for modern methods increased from 35 per cent to 44 per cent. The population growth rate was approximately 2.25 per cent in 2001 and remains high. The urban population is growing rapidly. #Development #Growth
