Introduction

The UNJP entitled, Shashakta Mahila, Sambriddha Nepal , Empowered Women, Prosperous Nepal-EWPN, a partnership of the ILO, UNFPA, UNICEF and UNWOMEN, financed by the European Union in Nepal, represents a strategic contribution to the achievement of gender equality as an integral element to the realization of the national vision of a prosperous and developed Nepal.

The UNJP seeks to address key drivers of gender inequality in Nepal through an integrated gender transformative approach with a focus on (1) ensuring that women, girls and other vulnerable groups are protected from exclusion, discrimination and violence in their homes and communities (2) strengthening women and girls access to decent work and economic opportunities and social protection and (3) addressing implementation and accountability gaps in policy and legal frameworks to uphold the principle of substantive equality.
