This study intends to identify the issues surrounding gender and nutritional aspects of poverty and food security by examining their underlying causes, including policy and institutional constraints,reviewing the research literature and available statistics at the national level and conducting participatory assessments of selected districts in the mountain, hill and Terai regions. Specifically, the objectives of the study are: To review and analyse national policies and programmes related to gender and nutrition in the context of poverty and food security; To assess the extent to which policies and programmes have been implemented and their impact on the nutritional and gender dimensions of rural poverty and food security; To review and conduct participatory assessments of the nutritional and gender dimensions of
poverty and food security issues at the district, household and intra household levels; and, To recommend necessary policies and programmes to integrate nutrition and gender concerns into government's objectives of poverty alleviation and food security. Gender inequality holds back growth of individuals and the development of countries, to the disadvantage of both men and women. It restricts women in every aspect of life, which bears directly on their education, health and socio-economic participation. The socio-economic indicators of Nepal show a wide gap in gender disaggregated data. Women generally have limited access to land and other productive resources and have less say in decision-making. Approximately 928 000 children 6 to 10 years of age do not have access to primary education. A substantial number of children, especially girls, are denied the opportunity to acquire even basic literacy.
The need to work to earn a livelihood and the concern for purity of the female body, which leads to the early marriages, heavily influence the level of female education. As long as there is no resource crunch in the family, primary school age girls have a chance to go to school. But as soon as resource constraints arise, the first casualty is often the education of the female child. Women compose a relatively deprived group since they are discriminated against in their own households, in society and with respect to many aspects of daily living. In fact, gender disparity begins from birth, continues throughout the different stages of female life and is perpetuated by various sources.
