Environment
Air pollution is one of the biggest environmental concerns Nepal faces. It sits at the bottom of international environment performance indexes concerning air quality, and the significant level of pollution causes illness and death in the country every year. It is estimated that 75% of the Nepalese population suffers the effects of polluted air particles.1 Climate change in Nepal has also caused decreased water levels and increased temperatures, which negatively impacts farmers.2

Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world, with about one-quarter of its population living below the poverty line. Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, providing a livelihood for three-fourths of the population and accounting for a little over one-third of GDP. Industrial activity mainly involves the processing of agricultural products, including pulses, jute, sugarcane, tobacco, and grain. Nepal has considerable scope for exploiting its potential in hydropower, with an estimated 42,000 MW of feasible capacity, but political instability hampers foreign investment.
