This document is prepared to develop a ‘targeted strategy which takes into account global best practices in the area of ending child marriages, including ending violence and harmful practices against women and girls through engaging communities and involving men and boys in this effort'. The proposed targeted strategy is part of the new Country Plan of Action (CPAP) of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, in Nepal which commenced in 2013 and will end in 2017.
The strategy has validated the focus of the CPAP to engage men and boys, parents and communities including religious leaders to address the issue of child marriage and harmful practices that are deeply rooted in socio cultural values and behaviours. UNFPA is rolling out the strategy in the UN agency's advocacy and behaviour change communication interventions at the district level and in its work to support national efforts of the government in strengthening systems to prevent and respond to violence and harmful practices.
