Development cooperation between Switzerland and Nepal goes back to the 1950's. Whereas Swiss assistance in the Himalayan foothills was initially concentrated almost exclusively on rural development programmes, projects devoted to bridge and road construction, sustainable management of natural resources, occupational skills/vocational training and support for small enterprises became more important in the 1990's.

Since 1998, with the unremitting escalation of the conflict between the Maoist rebels and the monarchist state, the Swiss engagement in Nepal has been more and more focused on peacebuilding and on strengthening governance.
