Sustainable Development Goals status and roadmap: 2016 - 2030
With the landmark elections of 2017 that elected nearly 40,000 officials to local, provincial and federal parliaments, Nepal has begun implementing its new constitution in earnest. Fortuitously, this new political and economic era in Nepal also coincides with the ambition of the global community to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This report, published by the National Planning Commission (NPC) with UNDP support, takes stock of Nepal’s development status and projects a roadmap to 2030. It highlights major issues and challenges that the country needs to reckon with in pursuit of the SDGs, and builds upon a pioneering SDG-related study prepared by NPC in the summer of 2015.
