Rural women constitute 43 percent of the total 83 percent population living in the rural areas of Nepal. As in many developing countries, women have played an important and often unrecognized role in the agriculture sector in Nepal that sustains nearly 80 percent of the total population. The recent increasing trend in out-migration of working age men is having a dramatic effect—both positive and negative on rural women. With so many men moving abroad for work, women have stepped into more meaningful leadership roles and also functioning as a caretaker of their family.
Women’s empowerment is a key to overall economic productivity, given women’s large presence (67%) in the agricultural workforce. Also, Nepal is in the process of implementing the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and empowerment of rural women is vital to the success of the SDGs: from the goal to end poverty and hunger, improve food security and nutrition, promote sustainable agriculture and, achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment.
