According to the World Bank, Nepal is currently in the position to “reduce poverty, increase income, … and pursue its ambitious agenda of inclusive growth and accountable service delivery.”
This comes as the country still suffers as one of the poorest countries in South Asia: 25% of Nepalis live below the poverty line and some 42% of Nepalis are unemployed.
This is further exacerbated during times of emergency as Nepal finds itself in the path of natural disasters regularly.
