KATHMANDU--20 Jun--World Bank

KATHMANDU, June 19, 2017 – The World Bank's attention has been drawn to recent commentary in the media regarding the National Curriculum Framework prepared by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.

"We wish to clarify the World Bank's support to Nepal's education sector," said Faris Hadad-Zervos, World Bank Country Manager for Nepal. "The World Bank and a group of development partners finance a part of the Government of Nepal's expenditures in implementing its School Sector Development Plan through a Sector Wide Approach (SWAP). Specifically, World Bank funding is linked to progress in agreed results in the Grades 9-10 curricula, and not Grades 11-12, as mentioned in recent reports."

"Our support seeks greater access to and achievements in language, science and mathematics. This corresponds with the World Bank's global advocacy for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as indispensable academic disciplines," Hadad-Zervos added.

The program was informed by wide consultations with Nepali experts and stakeholders and is publicly accessible here (pages 63-65).
