  • Description:

Under funding from the D4D program BikasUdhyami developed a series of sevenshort videos to demystify different aspects of Nepal’s development by explaining them on the basis of available data. The videos feature contemporary topics including poverty and inequality, the demographic dividend, the role of media as watchdog, energy, manufacturing, and violence against women. The videos are inspired by the videos of Hans Rosling, world renowned statistician and founder of the Gapminder Foundation. The videos were developed with the technical assistance of the Central Bureau of Statistics and are intended to generate more public interest around data and statistics to enhance people’s understanding of key issues related to Nepal’s development.
