Marasini, Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, and Dr. Beth Dunford, Mission Director of USAID/Nepal, signed an assistance agreement on behalf of the two governments.

The funds will be used over the next five years to reinforce recent gains in democratic processes (such as elections), improving governance, expanding proven health interventions in maternal and child health, improving literacy, increasing economic growth, and addressing the challenges of food insecurity and climate change.
