|Economic empowerment, by sex, age, and persons with disabilities is low. There is provision for allowances but the classification of disability needs to be improved. There is also a lack of capacity, diversity, and opportunity for all social groups. For this, municipalities, wards, and related organizations have launched economic empowerment programs based on women, men, gender, age, and disability. The government of Karnali Province has launched its ‘Bank Account for Daughters, Life-long Security’ programme. They expressed their commitment to reducing it further within three years.

10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
The international community has made significant strides towards lifting people out of poverty. The most vulnerable nations – the least developed countries, the landlocked developing countries and the small island developing states – continue to make inroads into poverty reduction. However, inequality still persists and large disparities remain in access to health and education services and other assets.
Additionally, while income inequality between countries may have been reduced, inequality within countries has risen. There is growing consensus that economic growth is not sufﬁcient to reduce poverty if it is not inclusive and if it does not involve the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental.
To reduce inequality, policies should be universal in principle paying attention to the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.
