Children living in poverty. More than a third of Nepal’s 12.6 million children – the foundation for tomorrow’s parents and leaders – live below the national poverty line. This is not all. Measured by the factors that constitute a child’s wellbeing, an even larger proportion of Nepal’s children suffer from severe malnutrition (just under 50% of children are short for their age or stunted), have inadequate access to schooling (10% of children do not attend school), and are deprived of at least one of the seven basic human needs (69%). Two in every five children experience severe deprivation of at least two basic human needs and, by this measure, can be considered to be living in absolute poverty.

This study of child poverty and disparities in Nepal is an attempt to systematically identify the poverty and disparities that children experience and the short falls in outcomes. The study follows UNICEF’s global methodology by focusing on the poverty and disadvantage faced by families with children and looks in detail at how public policies and resources could more effectively reduce child deprivations.  The study aims to strengthen the profile of children at the national policy table by drawing attention to the children who are left behind in Millennium Development Goal (MDG) progress, why they are being left behind, and how public policies and resources could more effectively reduce child deprivations.
