Nepal is a highly diverse society that includes around 125 recognised ethnic and caste groups and over 100 spoken languages. The traditional caste system creates many inherent patterns of discrimination that are embedded in attitudes and customs. The population lives predominantly in rural areas, but urbanisation is advancing rapidly.
The hilly and mountainous terrain makes many remote areas nearly inaccessible. As a result, poverty and exclusion have a distinct geographical and ethnic dimension. However, over the past decades Nepal has achieved an impressive decline in absolute poverty.
The population living under the national poverty line has fallen from 42% in 1995 to 23.8% in 2015. Income inequality remains high, however, and the earthquakes in 2015 pushed an additional 2.5% to 3.5% of the country s population back into poverty (WB 2015). The UNDP s Human Development Index (2015) ranks Nepal 145th among 188 countries, but the country has shown a consistently improving trend in its overall index score
