Relationship between population growth and agricultural change in Nepal: a regional analysis

Economic Journal of Nepal 17(1): 13-43
Relationship between population growth and agricultural change in Nepal: a regional analysis
The problems of growing population pressure on already scarce land are a recurrent concern in Nepal. The population is increasing very rapidly, and as agriculture is the main occupation, the proportion of the labour force engaged in this sector is high. The increasing pressure on the land has led to deforestation, soil erosion and environmental degradation. Total agricultural production has increased due to the expansion of agricultural land, but the yield rates of most crops has fallen.
