Second prize (runner up) — Chandan SAPKOTA
Volume 5 Number 2
Inclusive Economic Growth in Nepal
Chandan Sapkota is an economics officer at the Asian Development Bank’s Nepal Resident Mission, Kathmandu. Our judges were impressed with the policy relevance of the article, and the author’s coherent use of diverse information. As one judge noted:
The author has brought together an impressive array of data, weaving it together in a compelling analysis of Nepal’s experiences with inclusive growth. The consideration of both cross-country regional data, as well as intra-country national data further added to its policy relevance.
Our editorial broad members and the team at JPAID warmly congratulate our winners. We wish them all the best for their future research. We would also like to sincerely thank all of the authors who contributed to JPAID in 2014. The quality of articles was extremely high, and selecting two prize winners from such a strong field was a very difficult task for our judges. Unfortunately, no article authored by an early career researcher was published in 2014, so we were not able to be award our JPAID Prize for Early Career Researchers.
