About NISN Nepal

Nepal is a landlocked, mostly mountainous country (only 23 per cent of its land area is in the plains), with China in the North and India in the South, East and West. The country covers an area of 147,181 sq. km and has a population of 28 million. This federal democratic republic has an annual growth rate of 2.2 per cent. Administratively, Nepal is divided into five development regions, which are further divided into 14 zones and 75 districts. The industrial base of the country is very small and not very sophisticated; the industrial sector contributes only about 16 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP). The services sector accounts for nearly half of the GDP. Even then, there are innovation activities going on in the country, much of it not according to any plan. There is also some incremental innovation taking place at the grassroots.
