This profile of Dhanusha District in the Central Development Region of Nepal was produced by UN-RCHCO in preparation for the UNDAF 2013-17 implementation cycle. In some areas relevant to the UN and its partners’ work, information is not available at the district level, but this Profile represents a collection of such information based on field research by Biratnagar Field Coordination Office and centrally accessible documents.
UN RCHCO has prepared UNDAF District Profiles for 23 districts identified as lowest performing on development in the Nepal Country Analysis 2011. People from these districts are among the vulnerable groups whose status will be monitored to assess the impact of the UNDAF 2013-17. The District Profiles provide detailed background information on health services, education, food security, agriculture, employment, gender and social inclusion and other UNDAF areas at local level and can serve as a reference guide to information sources and contact persons relevant to the district.
