Nepal: Development and More

Democracy For Nepal has a list of “to do”s to accelerate growth and development in Nepal. “Focus on the information/telecommunications infrastructure more than on the physical infrastructure. Bathe the country with FM technology, the internet for the masses. Encourage the private sector to do most of it. Offer 10 years of schooling through the air waves: evening school perhaps. Target adults and children both. This makes illiteracy kind of irrelevant.”
