Base Camp/Main Sponsor, Development Partner – Yantra 7.0 Science, Tech and Entrepreneurship Festival

UNDP Nepal works with the people and Government of Nepal, and other development partners to pursue equitable and sustainable human development goals through eradication of poverty, increase in livelihood opportunities, improvement in community resilience against conflict, disasters and impact of climate change, while laying down strong foundations for a society based on rule of law with an inclusive and participatory democracy.

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.

UNDP in Nepal concentrates its efforts for greater impact in the most remote, poor, and/or conflict-affected areas of the mid- and far-western development regions and the Terai, where its rights-based interventions are targeted towards the disadvantaged and vulnerable groups. The UNDP programmes seek opportunities for joint programming with other United Nations organizations and engage in joint planning and monitoring of development activities in selected districts.

UNDP’s actions and programmes are defined in its Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) which is prepared between UNDP and the Government of Nepal. The CPAP is based on the broader United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). UNDP’s current CPAP (2013-2017) is based upon UNDAF 2012-2017.
