Nepal and the Millennium Development Goals: Final Status Report 2000-2015
Mar 12, 2017
This final status report assesses the status of achievement of the eight MDGs based on the data available in 2015. This assessment is based on periodic reports and studies on MDG implementation over the past one and a half decade. Its overall finding is that, while most targets have been achieved, some were partially achieved and there are some unfinished agendas. This report suggests that these unfinished agendas should be addressed in the planning and implementation of the follow on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (2016-2030). This report also articulates the major factors likely to affect the country’s future development agenda and the priorities for sustainable development. These factors include the fast rate of urbanization, accelerated labour migration, the remittance-dependent economy, the proliferation of information and communication technology and the high percentage of young people in the population. The following sections and Table A summarize the findings and recommendations on individual goals.
