A Rapid Scan Organizations Working on Women and Peace in Nepal
Abstract:
It has been important for UNIFEM to undertake this scan for a number of reasons.This is underlined by the fact that each reason is as vital as the other. Increased conflict and insurgency, accompanied by a lack of women in decision-making positions in processes of peace-making and nation building; the gendered impact of war on women; the loss of opportunities in being able to transform institutions and structures at the time of re-building, are some of the reasons, for this rapid scan of peace initiatives in Nepal. Most importantly, it is part of UNIFEM’s mandate and mission. Committed to advocating for and working towards realizing women’s human rights and human security, our work focuses on promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women, in times of peace as well as conflict. #UNWomen #HumanRights #GenderEquality #HumanSecurity #WomenEmpowerment #Peace
