Policy Data Snapshot: Nepal
This brief features selected data on Nepal most relevant to USAID/Nepal's Feed the Future work. According to the Enabling the Business of Agriculture, Nepal performs relatively well compared to an average across Feed the Future countries in facilitating access to markets, machinery, seed, and fertilizer. Areas with the greatest room for improvement include access to finance, transport services, ICT, and water management. Overall, scores highlight costly and inefficient licensing and registration regimes as well as poor quality control systems with few consumer protections.
This snapshot was produced by the Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security project, a global support mechanism for Missions and Washington-based USAID offices to address policies as well as legal, institutional, and regulatory factors that affect food security.
