Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank consists of two entities – the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). It is a global development cooperative owned by 189 member countries. As the largest development bank in the world, the World Bank provides loans, guarantees, risk management products, and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries, and coordinates responses to regional and global challenges.

The Nepal program has a considerable increase in IDA lending with a portfolio value at about USD3.0 + billion (including both IDA credits, Regional IDA credits and trust funds). Nepal is implementing the new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for next five years starting FY2019 with priority in three focus areas: (1) Public institutions and policies, (2) Growth and employment, and (3) Inclusion and resilience. The World Bank country program provides financial support and technical advisory services across a broad range of sectors, with focus in infrastructure, energy, human development services, climate and disaster risk management. In addition, the priority of the program is also to support implementation of federalism. World Bank assistance is channeled through government agencies for agreed development priorities. Technical Teams from the World Bank are drawn from staff in the Kathmandu Office and from around the world.
