A Common Framework for Gender Equality & Social Inclusion
PDF File Size: 9.23 MB | Download   
This framework was developed to help build a common understanding between Development Partners (DPs)regarding gender equality and social inclusion. Nepal has achieved significant progress in addressing these issues,supported by positive national and international commitments. However, a large proportion of Nepal’s population continues to be affected by discrimination. A more coherent approach among DPs will ensure further coordinated collective support to the Government of Nepal.The Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Working Group, (renamed from Social Inclusion Action Group (SIAG)in March 2016), is one of the Working Groups under the Social Cluster of the International Development Partner Group(IDPG) (Refer to Annex 1 for the list of IDPG GESI Working Group members). The GESI Working Group aims to pro-vide strategic advice and support to the IDPG and other development stakeholders on gender equality and social inclusion.USAID and UN Women are the current co-chairs, having taken over in March 2016 from Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office.Through financial support from SDC and USAID, the GESI Working Group commissioned national GESI expert Chhaya Jha to provide technical support to define the framework, with input from international GESI expert Dr. Lynn Bennett and GESI Working Group members. They reviewed the GESI guidelines, definitions, and tools used by various ministries and held consultations and discussions with a wide range of government, DPs and civil society stakeholders at the commu-nity, district and national levels – including workshops in five districts (one per region). In Kathmandu, the GESI Working Group held consultation workshops with DPs, INGOs, and Gender Focal Persons of various ministries. These consultations helped ensure that this framework is based on effective measures being practiced in Nepal and that it covers the key elements required to address challenges and enhance capacities of women, the poor, the vulnerable and the excluded.The GESI Working Group believes that the development of a common understanding among GESI Working Group members and DPs, through this framework, will improve coordination and harmonization between DPs and lead to more effective support to state and non-state actors in the implementation of the “inclusion” vision embedded in the new constitution, and in delivering positive development impacts in a highly diverse Nepali society.
