GENDER EQUALITY UPDATE NO. 12 Nepal Flood Response 2017 UPDATE No. 12
PDF File Size: 666 KB | Download   
Although the legal frameworks of Nepal largely support gender equality and social inclusion, various social norms and discriminatory practices have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable and marginalized populations when disaster strikes.
Integrating gender equality, social inclusion approach is critical for effectiveness and accountability to affected populations. Women and girls, and the most marginalised and vulnerable groups– single women, female headed households, persons living with disabilities, pregnant and lactating
women, adolescent girls, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI), senior citizens, children, caste and ethnicity-based minorities – are particularly impacted and in need of targeted support to ensure equitable
access to and benefit from relief, services and information.
The Inter-Cluster Gender in Humanitarian Action Task Team under the UNCT Gender Theme Group has been reactivated to provide support on gender
mainstreaming in the humanitarian response cycle. It is led by UN Women
and UNDP and included cluster gender focal points and key gender experts and
stakeholders from the UN, NGOs/INGOs and CSOs.
