The project “Strengthening Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Nepal: Towards Implementation of National Action Plan on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820”, funded by the Government of Finland, aims to strengthen local level implementation of Nepal’s National Action Plan (NAP) on United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UN-SCRs) 1325 and 1820 through innovative strategies that promote women’s participation in peace,security and governance processes. The specific objectives of the project area: (i) to enhance the collective capability of national and local level government and other relevant stakeholders to implement and monitor the NAP on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820; (ii) to economically and socially em-power conflict affected women and former combatants in three districts through comprehensive assessment of their needs and their operating environment, and innovative programmes; and (iii) to enhance the leadership and participation of women in key decision-making structures in the project districts. According to the study by Search for Common Ground during the inception phase in 2012, and conclusion in 2016, UN Women through the SIWPSAN project reduced violence against women and girls and improved their conditions. Compared to women who were not covered by SI-4 Way Forward WPSAN, women who were, became more aware of their rights and provisions set up to protect and defend them. Practices such as dowry, sending women and girls out of the home during their menstrual cycle (chaupadi), polygamy, forced marriages (or tani bihe) were addressed. The number of rape cases went down in Doti and Kailali. In 2012, 56% of respondents reported deterioration in health due to lack of care during pregnancy, post delivery, or due to multiple births. Four years later,this figure fell to 31%. SIWPSAN localized and promoted the national action plan on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820. In 2012, only 4% knew of the resolution whereas 47% were aware in 2016. 89 decisions were taken by the district coordination committees (DCCs) that were set up and half of these were put into practice. These committees coordinated skill development training, assured scholarships to conflict-affected families, prepared year one and two plans, shared mid-term evaluation, monitored as a team, published reports, and updated the list of conflict affected women. 68% of conflict affected households from 15 Village Development Committees of project districts had participated in skill development and awareness training by 2016.
