Our analysis suggests that over the next 10 years, global trade patterns will be transformed by climate change, international mitigation, and natural-resource scarcity, resulting in an inevitable shift over time to a low-carbon global economy. This study has been asking what this might look like. What impact will it have on Nepal’s competitiveness and growth? What threats and opportunities will it create? And how should policy-makers and businesses respond?
This report examines how these issues could play out in Nepal over the next decade, particularly focusing on the energy, forestry and tourism sectors. It has identified potential opportunities and threats to Nepal’s competitiveness and growth, and possible policy responses.
