Urban growth and spatial transition in Nepal: an initial assessment

Urban Growth and Spatial Transition in Nepal carries out an initial assessment of Nepal’s urban growth and spatial transformation, with a focus on spatial demographic and economic trends, economic growth drivers, and urban planning and infrastructure challenges. The study aims to stimulate evidence-based policy dialogue on Nepal’s urban transition and to assist those working for Nepal’s economic development—the government, private sector, civil society, and development partners—in framing policies and interventions for seizing the benefits and addressing the challenges of rapid urbanization.
