UNICEF in Nepal (2008 - 2010)

By 2008, full stability had not yet returned to Nepal despite the signing of a Comprehensive Peace Accord in 2006. The ten years of conflict worsened the situation for many vulnerable people – child labour and trafficking increased, for example, while birth registration rates fell. Many of the social disparities among castes and ethnicities that helped spark the conflict remain today, and women continue to face discrimination and chronic economic insecurity.
Despite the persistence of low quality services, many indicators are now beginning to improve, notably in child mortality rates, poverty reduction, immunisation, sanitation and access to safe drinking water. But HIV remains a threat, and nutrition, gender equality and maternal health are not on course to achieve the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. School retention rates remain too low for girls, affected by poverty, closures, and fear of violence in some areas.
UNICEF celebrated 40 years of work in Nepal in 2008 and has participated in many of the development strides the country has taken in that time from basic services in the 60s, immunisations in the 70s, early childhood rights, education and protection in the 80s,
empowering communities to monitor and advocate for their own health and education needs in the 90s, and an emphasis on protection during the conflict in the 2000s.
The 2008-2010 programme is focussed on the poorest and most excluded, including young people impacted by the conflict. It stresses women’s and young people’s participation and seeks to assist local communities to better manage their development needs – and importantly to strengthen the relationship between community and government. The programme works in the Child Protection, Education, Health, HIV/AIDS, Water and Sanitation, and Social Policy Sectors. Programmes are delivered both nationally and through UNICEF’s Decentralised Action for Children and Women approach (DACAW).
