Agriculture is Nepal's principal economic activity, employing 68% of the population and providing 34% of GDP. Yet large sections of the population suffer from food deficits and poor nutrition. This is further compounded by natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, and other factors such as political instability and increased outward migration, increasing the pressure on communities to adapt and prepare for shocks and stresses.

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.
