WFOT Country Report Assignment
Overview of Country's Politics, Demographics, Culture, etc: CIA World Factbook
Information about OT in a Specific Country: WFOT Member List by Country or COTEC (Europe). Some countries have a less robust/official OT presence. It is possible that they organize via Facebook group, Wordpress sites, or other informal communities. If you don't find an official-looking website, see if there's anything on Google. Example: Nepal AND "occupational therapy" . Another idea: translate the country name and the term "occupational therapy" into the country's major language, then search.
