The UN Women Nepal’s Strategic Note (SN) for the period 2023-2027 lays out the agency’s unique role and comparative advantage in supporting national stakeholders in advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women in line with internationally agreed normative standards. The SN is aligned with and contributes to Nepal’s national priorities and commitments as described in the Nepal Constitution 2015 and the Fifteenth Periodic Plan, the needs of women’s organizations, and the UNSDCF with a commitment of leaving no one behind. UN Women will advance its efforts in Nepal in accordance with its unique role and triple mandate (normative, operational and coordination) and lessons learned to achieve gender equality and social inclusion and empower women and girls in Nepal to realize their human rights
The SN highlights the structural causes of gender inequality and inter-sectional social exclusion as bound up in its social norms. UN Women believes in a holistic approach to tackling structural gender inequality, transforming discriminatory social norms and ending harmful practices. UN Women pursues transformative change in social norms across its programming areas namely gender responsive and inclusive governance (GRIG), ending gender based violence, humanitarian action, DRR and climate change, as well as women’s economic empowerment (WEE). Further, the UN Women Strategic Note underscores the need for programming across the post-conflict, humanitarian and development continuum. UN Women is currently implementing a longer term initiative on storytelling to understand pathways for social norm change and the factors that spur transformative shifts toward gender equality.
