Resident Coordinator Annual Report 2017
PDF File Size: 5.58 MB | Download   
In 2017, joint Annual Work Plans (AWPs) of result groups were developed. A joint initiative from UN agencies developing and implementing the joint programs on gender equality and women’s rights, human rights, land tenure, environmental sustainability and many more delivered a good synergy on results achievement and to support sustainable development goals. The year 2017 has been significant in terms of reforming the legal system to improve access to justice for poor and vulnerable portions of the population and for the enforcement of the Constitution in Nepal. The first local elections held in two decades broke historic barriers to women’s representation in local governance. Because of the quotas required under the Constitution, 14,000 women (of which 6,500 Dalit) now hold 41 percent of local elected positions. The objective is to ensure that the guidelines, prepared 4 years ago before the launch of the SDGs, are brought in line with the global indicator framework, and, in the spirit of “leaving no one behind,” incorporating the required levels of disaggregation of data on indicators by sex, location, caste and income groups. Some of the main improvements during the 2016/17 fiscal year were the increase in the number of children entering grade 1, and an increased enrollment rate up to grade 8 and grade 10. The critical review of the Education programme allows it to improve the quality of learning with a lens on equity and will contribute to the Government of Nepal’s objective of achieving SDG 4.
