About the Portfolio/Programme/Project
UN Women Nepal’s Strategic Note (SN) for the period 2023-27 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 as described in Nepal’s Fifteen Plan, its gender equality commitments, the needs of women’s organisations and the UNSDCF 2023-27 with a commitment of leaving no one behind.
UN Women is one of the participating UN Agencies in the EU funded UN Joint Programme “Empowered Women, Prosperous Nepal”. This is a four-year (2023-2026) joint programme to be implemented by four agencies (UNICEF, UN Women, ILO and UNFPA) . The project will be implemented in three provinces of Nepal namely Madhesh, Karnali and Sudurpaschim province.
The overall objective of the JP is to contribute to the full realisation of Nepalese women and girls’ human rights and agency. The project seeks to unlock Nepalese women and girls’ potential through strategic actions targeting the underlying drivers of gender inequality and investment in gender equality accelerators. In realizing the aforementioned objectives, the project will focus on achieving the following outcomes (1) Men and boys, families and communities demonstrate more gender-equitable behaviours and support for positive social and gender norms that promote GEWE, and women and girls have increased agency and voice. (2) Women, men, girls and boys, in all their diversity, access opportunities to exercise their equal economic, labour and social rights. (3) Institutions deliver gender equality outcomes in all spheres, in line with international and national normative frameworks.

The Programme Specialist works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
