The poverty and in­equal­ity will be re­duced in the 12th five-year plan (FYP). The pro­por­tion of those liv­ing be­low the na­tional poverty line and growth rates of house­hold ex­pen­di­ture or in­come per capita among the bot­tom 40 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion and the to­tal pop­u­la­tion is ex­pected to re­duce.

Cli­mate re­silient de­vel­op­ment and sus­tain­able uti­liza­tion of nat­u­ral re­sources en­hanced

The cli­mate re­silient de­vel­op­ment and sus­tain­able uti­liza­tion of nat­u­ral re­sources can be en­hanced through the re­duc­tion of green­house gas emis­sion, pro­por­tion of for­est area un­der sus­tain­able for­est man­age­ment, good am­bi­ent wa­ter qual­ity, eco­log­i­cal is­sues index, re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards en­vi­ron­ment, and wa­ter se­cu­rity index and mi­gra­tion rate of high­landers. Qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion im­proved

The qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion in the Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tutes ac­cred­ited by re­gional/in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion bod­ies is ex­pected to im­prove.

Dis­as­ter re­silience and pre­pared­ness strength­ened

The num­ber of Na­tional Com­mand and Evac­u­a­tion Cen­ters will be in­creased

The av­er­age ser­vice de­liv­ery TAT for most com­monly avail­able G2C and G2B ser­vices and av­er­age an­nual per­for­mance rat­ing of gov­ern­ment agen­cies less than 90 per­cent is ex­pected to im­prove dur­ing the plan pe­riod. The gov­ern­ment per­for­mance index and cit­i­zen’s con­fi­dence in ju­di­cial ser­vices is also a part of im­prove­ment in the 12th FYP. Women and girls em­pow­ered

Thus, the youth (aged 15-24) who are not in ed­u­ca­tion will be given train­ing for em­ploy­ment. De­cen­tral­iza­tion strength­ened There will be share of hu­man re­source bud­get

and cap­i­tal bud­get al­lo­ca­tion to LGs. There will be a pro­por­tion of civil ser­vants at lo­cal gov­ern­ments to strength de­cen­tral­ize. Healthy, safe and car­ing so­ci­ety sus­tained

Life ex­pectancy rate is ex­pected to in­crease while sui­cide rate will de­crease. The road traf­fic fa­tal­i­ties, in­ci­dence of non­com­mu­ni­ca­ble dis­eases and crime rate will be re­duced.

It is also tar­geted in­ter­ven­tions to­wards se­nior cit­i­zens and youth in con­flict with laws.
