Nepal views the economy, society, and environment as the pillars of green growth and sustainable development. These three pillars are being mainstreamed into the development process through formulation of supportive national policies and through climate change-related initiatives. One example of this mainstreaming is the national government support provided to local governments to create District Climate and Energy Plans (DCEPs).
This case study was developed based on content presented at the 2013 Delhi Sustainable Development Summit, in a session entitled Learning from Green Growth Initiatives in Asia. The session was organized by the Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership with support from the Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
