Promoting Gender Equality in the Humanitarian Response
PDF File Size: 296 KB | Download   
Nepal is signatory to 23 human rights treaties and International human rights instruments. The legal framework in Nepal largely supports women’s rights and equality including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA), the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), UN Security Council Resolutions 1325 and 1820. The Interim Constitution of Nepal 2007 states “no physical, mental or any forms of violence shall be inflicted to any women, and such an act shall be punishable by law”. Nepal is also a signatory of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which it ratified in 2010, showing that the Nepal government is committed to protect the rights of persons with disabilities. Similarly, the Government of Nepal passed the Senior Citizens Act in 2006 that promotes the protection and social security of older people. However, despite heightened awareness, policies, programmes and plans of action supporting the advancement of gender equality and social inclusion, discriminatory social norms and harmful practices continue in many parts of Nepal.
