Promoting Gender Equality and Social Inclusion: Nepal’s Commitments and Obligations


Nepal has an age-long patriarchal social, economic, political and cultural setup that is deeply entrenched and widespread in which women and Dalits are the hardest-hit. The recent wave of political change in the country has brought significant progress in addressing these issues, supported by positive national and international commitments and affirmative action towards marginalized populations. With the promulgation of the new Constitution, it is important for the government to align its development strategy and priorities with overall development process in tune with the Sustainable Development Goals. INHURED International, with assistance by USAID and The Asia Foundation, carried out this study on legal, policy, institutional and administrative frameworks on gender equality and social inclusion, offering constructive feedback to concerned stakeholders in designing, and implementing desired interventions.
