Digital Nepal Framework

The Digital Nepal Framework includes one nation, eight sectors, and 80 digital initiatives.

The study claims that there are eight dimensions of the Digital Nepal framework. The framework consists of the digital foundation, agriculture, health, education, energy, tourism, finance, and urban infrastructure.

However, this is a framework from 2018. The beauty of this framework is that it features a 5-year plan to develop ICT (Information, Communication, and Technology) sector of Nepal.

The discussion regarding the Framework

Although digital Nepal is the government’s mega project, it’s a challenging job to implement it in the country.

Due to poor ICT infrastructure, financial resources, geographical diversity, low skilled human resource, technology import, its upgrading and maintenance, the digital divide between citizens, crucial and rude bureaucratic nature, unsystematic working process, weak policy, gap, and lapses; and not proper government’s monitoring, supervision and control mechanism.

It may face many challenges during the operation.

This discussion is an extraction from the Digital Nepal Framework.

That was in 2018. This is 2020.

We all hope that this year’s budget planning works as per plan and we get to experience Cybersecurity at its best and Digital Nepal Framework first hand.
