The Atlas Alliance is proud to present our 2016 Progress report. 2016 also marks the first year for implementing the ambitious 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a
framework that recognises meaningful participation and inclusion of persons with disability in all areas of
development and economic growth.

This study on living conditions among persons with disability in Nepal was carried out in
2014 - 2015. It follows similar studies in seven countries in the southern Africa Region
and is thus part of a large database that can be utilized for international comparison.
