Nepal is currently at a turning point.
There are many positive developments that are pushing the county towards a more just, prosperous and equitable future. For instance, the Human Development Index in Nepal has increased over 11% since the end of the civil war in 2006, and during the same period, the number of people in Nepal living on less than $1.25 USD per day has been cut in half. But there is a chances for change, Nepal ratified its new constitution in September 2015, creating new reforms that lend themselves to a more progressive and stable environment for Nepal.
However, Nepal is still lagging far behind its potential, especially in social and economic development. Poor infrastructure, subpar medical facilities, public and private financial instability, and an overabundance of government regulatory baring NGOs from preforming at their full potential. Malnutrition and an unreliable agricultural sector are only some of the issues Nepal is facing.
