Birendranagar, located in the Karnali, undoubtedly has an immense role to play in economic development and prosperity within her own territory as a local government. It must be noted at the outset that the state of Karnali on its own is, in comparison to other states, underdeveloped, and to a certain extent, her underdevelopment is also reflected in the underdevelopment of her local governments.
One of the potential hindrances to the development of Birendranagar as identified in the diagnostic study has been the lack of proper human resources. Although Birendranagar’s service sector, agriculture sector, and construction sector have been rapidly increasing in the past few
years, entrepreneurs and business owners alike are doubtful if such growth could be sustained over a prolonged period of time when there is a lack of skilled human resources to harness the true potential of these sectors. Against this backdrop, the following sections will try to look upon the employment sector of Birendranagar and closely analyse it through a sectorial Political Economic analysis which is drawn heavily upon the guidelines of the World Bank’s Sectorial framework on Political Economic Analysis (PEA).
