CHALLENGING THE CUSTOMARY DIVIDE - STRENGTHENING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY AGENDA IN NEPAL
PDF File Size: 3.49 MB | Download   
The SIWPSAN project was implemented from 2013 to 2016 by UN Women-Nepal with funding support of the Government of Finland and the cooperation of the Government of Nepal (GoN), local partners, international development organizations and UN agencies. One year after the closure of the project, women and girls have been visibly at the forefront of peace building, re-integration and conflict resolution efforts of Nepal. Through the SIWPSAN project, the participation of women in youth networks, women’s groups, mothers’ groups, local committees and political parties have significantly increased from 20 to 74 per cent in the project districts.
The SIWPSAN project has created a robust foundation for meaningful and sustainable local implementation of the women, peace and security (WPS) agenda in Nepal through creative engagement of multiple stakeholders, especially groups of marginalized women. Being one of the first projects to have been implemented based on Nepal’s first NAP on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820, the project facilitated accelerated and sustained progress on WPS initiatives in the country, especially at the local level. It brought about economic and social improvements in the lives of the women beneficiaries; demonstrated effective approaches to achieving such change; enabled government, communities, non-government and civil society organizations (NGOs/CSOs), and women’s groups to engage in productive partnerships around WPS; and produced knowledge products, including this publication, that will help to further advance initiatives and decision making on WPS beyond the completion of the SIWPSAN project.
