UNDP has been supporting the Nepalese people in their struggle against poverty since it opened an in-country office in 1963. Much of this support has gone to building up the capacity of government agencies, civil society and community groups to fight poverty, and to bringing these groups and Nepal’s donors together to design and implement successful poverty alleviation projects.

In parallel to the roll-out of its new Country Programme, 2018-2022, UNDP Nepal is reorganizing internally and moving towards strategically repositioning UNDP’s global contributions in support of the Sustainable Development Goals and collaboration with national development partners. Nepal is accelerating its agenda of federalization while reconciling aspects of its Constitution which have implications for how UNDP engage with central and local level authorities. Meanwhile, Nepal’s GNI continues to grow, making graduation from LDC status a scenario for which UNDP needs to begin planning and adapting to different models of development cooperation.
