Nepal is a severely food deficit country struggling to recover from a decade-long civil war. With an estimated GDP per capita of $524 (FY 2010), Nepal remains one of the poorest countries in South Asia, with about 25 percent of Nepalis living below the international poverty line of $1.25/day. According to the Nepal Demographic Health Survey, the rate of stunting among under-five children is 41 percent, wasting is 11 percent and underweight is 29 percent, reflecting widespread chronic malnutrition.



America has stood with Nepal for 65 years and we continue to stand with Nepal as it regains its strength—with stronger homes, healthier families, abundant agricultural yields, and a more inclusive government. As we put the past year behind us, please take a moment to reflect on how far we have come, be mindful of the times when light shone through the dark, and know that in the coming years, the United States will journey onward with Nepal toward our shared vision – a more democratic, prosperous, and resilient Nepal.
