JICA & JICA in Nepal

JICA's Vision

Inclusive & Dynamic Development

"Inclusive Development" represents an approach to development that encourages all people to recognize the development issues they themselves face, participate in addressing them, and enjoy the fruits of such endeavors. The role of new JICA is to effectively provide backing for this process.

"Dynamic Development" refers to the creation of self-reinforcing virtuous cycles of mid to long-term economic growth and poverty reduction in a constantly changing environment of developing countries where a variety of issues arise simultaneously and get entangled with each other. New JICA will provide creative, highly effective support toward this end, at times moving swiftly and at times acting from the longer-term perspective as the situation calls for.
