Development of 5 Year District Periodic Plan for Khotang
Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)
March 2010 to September 2011
The development index (ICIMOD 1997) shows Khotang as 46th poorest and the most under-developed district of Nepal. The total population in Khotang is 206,312 (CBS, 2011). Accessibility is very limited in the district with road building and connectivity with national road network being a recent initiative and only basic transport link and services in place. The assignment therefore seeks to develop periodic plans within District Periodic Plan(DPP) framework for the overall development of the districts.
