In September 2021, the World Bank joined hands with the government of Nepal and development partners to endorse the landmark ‘Kathmandu Declaration’ for a strategic action plan for green, resilient, and inclusive development (GRID) of Nepal to systematically address the impacts of COVID-19 and the country’s structural challenges.

The GRID approach involves a fundamental shift in managing risk and development: from a reactive response to a deliberate and proactive recovery strategy for long-term green growth, climate action, and sustainable and inclusive development for all. To support GRID, Nepal’s Development partners have identified up to $4.2 billion in potential future support, in addition to the $3.2 billion in previously committed resources.
