In Nepal, there is a huge disparity across gender, caste, ethnicity and geographic region which is a barrier for women, poor and excluded groups to access resources, services, and opportunities for their development.
The Constitution of Nepal (2015) clearly envisions Nepal as an inclusive state and guarantees the right to equality for its citizens. Nepal is also signatory to various international and national conventions that legally commit to GESI. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, with 169 targets seek to realize human rights of all to achieve gender equality and empowerment of women and girls, and to reach the poorest. The SDG 1, 5, 10, and 15 call for progress towards GESI, by including the excluded, and building and sustaining inclusive institutions and systems. The GoN’s 14th Three Year Plan (2016/17 - 2018/19) emphasizes on meaningful participation of all citizens for Nepal’s inclusive development and aims for human development and empowerment index of economically and socially marginalized groups.
Lately, the major sectorial ministries such as, Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MoFALD), Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Ministry of Forest and Social Conservation (MoFSC), Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Health (MoH), have been making efforts in this direction by issuing and implementing GESI policies and guidelines and allocating a dedicated unit with trained staffs. These GESI strategies and guidelines emphasize on the participation of women, Dalit, Adibasi/Janajati, Madhesi, Muslim, people with disability and excluded communities in the formulation, implementation, M&E of sectorial policies, plans and programs; it recognizes the need to address specific barriers faced by the women, poor and excluded groups in different sectors.
UN Women has been supporting NASC under the project, Support Nepal Administrative Staff College (NASC) to integrate Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) and Gender Responsive Budget (GRB) in the training curriculum and provide trainings to further enhance capacities of Government officials in line with the 14th Periodic plan and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), for the purpose to develop capacity of NASC on GESI and GRB to design and deliver stand-alone course for Class II and Class III Officers of GoN.
