9780821396599: Urban Growth and Spatial Transition in Nepal: An Initial Assessment (Directions in Development)

Nepal: Urban Growth and Spatial Transition 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 infrastructure requirements of Nepal’s urban regions.

The book notes that Nepal is the fastest urbanizing country in South Asia. The spatial transformation is characterized by fast growing population density in the Kathmandu Valley - Nepal’s largest urban conurbation -, along the main highways and close to the border with India, and clustering of economic production in the Kathmandu Valley and in the Eastern and Western Tarai.

Yet, urbanization has been less correlated with economic growth in Nepal than in other countries in South Asia. In spite of its remarkable progress in alleviating poverty, Nepal is caught up in a cycle of political instability and economic stagnation, with economic growth below 4 percent per annum over the last decade. Urban areas have distinct comparative advantage in cultural tourism services, crafts, and agro-processing, but they have not been able to turn them into competitive advantages. Lack of effective planning, and inadequate infrastructure are a major constraint for urban growth and competitiveness.

Nepal needs to foster the sustainable growth of its urban regions, promote the development and regeneration of the Kathmandu Valley Metropolitan Region and enhance the competitiveness of strategic urban clusters - first and foremost tourism, agro-processing and handicraft - to unlock urban-based growth and ensure the sustainability of the spatial transformation.

The study aims to stimulate evidence-based policy dialogue on Nepal’s urban transition, and assist those working in the critical area for Nepal’s economic development – the Government, the private sector, civil society and the development partners - in framing policies and interventions for addressing the challenges, and seizing the benefits of rapid urbanization.

Book Description World Bank Publications. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 160 pages. Dimensions: 9.9in. x 6.9in. x 0.6in.Nepal is one of the fastest urbanizing countries in South Asia. Its spatial transition is characterized by fast-growing population density in the Kathmandu Valley, along the main highways, and close to the border with India. Yet this urbanization has been less correlated with economic growth than in other South Asian countries. Accelerating growth would require broadening the base of economic activities and job creation in urban areas. Nepals cities have not fully exploited their comparative advantages in strategic sectors like tourism, handicrafts, and agroprocessing. Lack of effective planning and inadequate infrastructure are major constraints for sustainable urban growth and city competitiveness and have increased vulnerability to natural disasters. To unlock urban-based growth and ensure the sustainability of the urban transition, Nepal needs to facilitate the clustering of economic activities, while creating the enabling environment for sustainable urban development and service delivery; promote the development and regeneration of the Kathmandu Valley; and enhance the competitiveness of strategic urban clusters-such as tourism, handicrafts, and agroprocessing-based on a partnership between the public and private sectors. Urban Growth and Spatial Transition in Nepal carries out an initial assessment of Nepals 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 Nepals urban transition and to assist those working for Nepals 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.
