Think tank

HID seeks to contribute to Nepalese society by providing critical analysis of public policy issues. Focusing on policy research at the national level and development endeavors at the regional and community level, the institute has trained a large number of researchers in social science disciplines. Using its socio-economic laboratory to analyze and simulate the impact of new public policies on the labor market, trade, poverty, and gender, HID has developed a socio-economic database of Nepalese society, conducting social experiments using applied general equilibrium and microsimulation models. The institute has prepared regionally disaggregated social accounting matrices and integrated CGE microsimulation models to assess the effects of economic policy on individual households, including formulating a macromodel of the ongoing Tenth Plan of Nepal. Multidisciplinary research at HID aims at disentangling the complex social and economic issues facing society today. HID also undertakes collaborative research with multilateral and bilateral organizations, academic and research institutions, including domestic and overseas universities. HID provides research advice to students, both at home and abroad, who are pursuing doctoral dissertations on social accounting matrices, applied general equilibrium analysis, econometric modeling, and poverty and gender issues.
