The Delegation of the European Union to Nepal and UNFPA, in coordination with the Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizen and relevant provincial and local authorities, launched a two-year project to tackle gender-based violence (GBV) in Province 2 and Karnali on 14 October 2020.

 As the COVID-19 crisis continues to put women and girls at increased risk of GBV, the project will ensure the provision of critical services for GBV survivors in seven municipalities. The project will support One Stop Crisis Management Centres, psychosocial services, and access to shelters, amongst other immediate response services. Working hand in hand with public and non-state actors, the project will strengthen and accelerate efforts to prevent and respond to GBV by addressing the emerging challenges and pre-existing gaps worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This publication is the brochure of the project.
