3.6 Nepal Additional Service Providers

 

In recent years Nepal's efforts to expand into manufacturing industries and other technological sectors have achieved much progress. However, manufacturing is still at the developmental stage and it represents less than 10% of the GDP.

Major industries include: production of wool carpets, garments, textiles, leather products, paper and cement. Other products made in Nepal include: steel utensils, cigarettes, beverages and sugar. There are large-scale factories, but the majority of manufacture takes place in small scale operations. Most of Nepal's industries are based in the Kathmandu Valley and a string of small towns in the southern Terai Plains.

Foreign trade is characterized mainly by import of manufactured products and export of agricultural raw materials. Nepal imports manufactured goods and petroleum products worth about US$ 1 billion annually. The value of exports is about US$ 315 million. Carpet and garment exports account for more than US$ 200 million annually, and handicraft goods bring in about US$ 1 million. Other important exports include: pulses, hides and skins, jute and medicinal herbs.

Taxi Companies

Taxis are available in Kathmandu and in the major cities in the country. There are no taxi companies in Nepal as the taxis are operated by individuals. 

Electricity and Power Supplies

Electricity supply in Nepal is sourced primarily from the Nepal Electric Authority (NEA), Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and imports from India. Nepal Electric Authority operates primarily hydroelectric power plants (with some small thermal power generation capacity as well) accounting for approximately 51% of existing supply. Independent Power Producers account for approximately 18% of existing supply. Import of electricity from India accounts for the remaining 32% of existing supply (NEA 2015).

Of the total population, 700,000 households have access to electricity. A total of 900 Village Development Committees in 59 districts have access to the central electric grid. The electricity demand of Integrated Nepal Power System (INPS) in fiscal year 2013/14 was estimated at approximately 5,910 GWh, out of which only 4,632 GWh (78%) could be supplied.

Waste Management and Disposal Providers

The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has the main responsibility for managing solid waste in Kathmandu Metropolitan area. The Ministry of Urban Development (MOUD), Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MOFALD), Solid Waste Management Technical Support Centre (SWMTSC) have also roles and responsibilities for managing the municipal waste. Contact address of KMC is as follows:

 

Kathmandu Metropolitan City Office

Bagdurbar, Kathmandu, Nepal

Phone: 977 -1 1 4231481

Fax: 977-1-426-509

Email: kmcmayor@mos.com.np

SWMTSC is responsible for providing technical support to manage solid waste properly and environment friendly. All vehicles and required man power is provided by KMC to collect and deliver waste from different locality to designated dumping site. The Sisodal Lindfield site is official dumping site for Kathmandu valley, which is operational from 2005. It is 26 KM in distance from main office, Teku, Kathmandu. Banchare Danda is further 6 KM from Sisodal site which is designated site for future waste dosposal. Likewise, according to act of Nepal all municipality authorities are responsible to manage the waste inside the Area of Responsibilities. All organization are responsible for waste management within the organization whereas municipality of Nepal take responsibility to manage the waste collectively. There is designated land filled side in close proximity of respective municipality. One of the challenge for this management is due to political instability (Strike and Bundh) sometime waste is not collected by concerned authority that create problem of garbage in the Kathmandu City.  

Government of Nepal is on process to privatize the waste management responsibility in Nepal. With that provision Metropolitan or Municipality authority will most likely take provides technical support and responsible for monitoring and supervisory role. Recently on 23rd September 2016 government enacted policy to regulate segregate different types of disposable items. This policy will ensure recycling programme for the waste.
