PACE produces original analysis and targeted communication materials to examine variations in adolescent fertility throughout Nepal. Together with local partners, PACE works to ensure that Nepal’s policies and programs use this new information on adolescent fertility to strengthen family planning programs and keep girls in school as the country promotes sustainable, equitable economic growth and development.
PACE and its partner organization in Nepal, Digital Data System for Development, produce effective communication materials on a broad range of subjects.
Municipality-Level Estimates of Adolescent Fertility in Nepal
To support targeted local planning in the context of Nepal’s recently devolved governance, the PACE Project has released modeled estimates of adolescent fertility for the 753 municipalities in Nepal. A suite of products—including a set of national and provincial maps, fact sheets, and an online interactive feature—highlights the key results that show where adolescent fertility is high and stagnant or increasing, allows users to explore the data, provides guidance on interpreting the information, and recommends policy and programmatic actions to reduce adolescent fertility.
PACE supports multisectoral policy communities in Nepal to improve communication and coordination between stakeholders in various localities in Nepal and to strengthen commitment from policymakers on key issues that impact adolescent fertility, including family planning and education.
Policy dialogues and events take a multisectoral approach, inspiring communication between sectors and breaking down silos.
