The Delegation of the European Union to Nepal and the United Nations Population Fund, in coordination with the Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens 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 7 municipalities. The project will support One Stop Crisis Management Centres (OCMC), 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.

While the rates of child marriage are decreasing in South Asia, the vulnerability and insecurity that arises during humanitarian crises threatens to undermine this progress. This report combines the findings from research with conflict-affected Rohingya refugees residing in Bangladesh, and 2015 earthquake affected communities in Nepal. The research analyses similarities and differences across the contexts, in order to learn about these two settings and also to understand what might be generalized to child marriage in humanitarian settings more broadly. It is hoped that the findings will inform programme interventions in these humanitarian settings and provide insight into child marriage in humanitarian contexts.

Although several policies, legislation and programmes for GBV prevention and the provision of response services have been put in place in Nepal, and there are encouraging signs of progress, much more needs to be done to end this scourge. This includes challenging social norms that value men and boys over women and girls and perpetuate discriminatory practices and violence against women and girls.

यस प्रकाशन यूएनएफपीएको विश्व जनसंख्या स्थिति २०२० प्रतिवेदनमा आधारित मुख्य सन्देशहरुसँग सम्बन्धित छन् ।  नेपालमा विद्यमान लैङ्गिक असमानताका कारण छोरीको अवमुल्यन भईरहेको, प्रजनन दर घटिरहेको तथा छोरीलाई भन्दा छोराको चाहाना बढेको हुनाले गर्भपतन गर्ने अभ्यास वृद्धि भैरहेको छ ।  

बालविवाहको सबैभन्दा उच्च दर रहेको एसियाली देशहरु मध्ये नेपाल पनि रहेको छ । नेपालमा किशोर–किशोरी दुवैका लागि विवाहको कानुनी उमेर २० वर्ष भएपनि ४० प्रतिशत किशोरीहरुको विवाह १८ वर्षभित्र विवाह हुने गरेको छ । किशोरीहरुको शिक्षा र स्वास्थ्य सेवामा पहुँच पुर्‍याउदै उनीहरुमा लगानी, विवाह गर्ने उमेर बढाउने र छिटो बच्चा नजन्माउने सुनिश्चित गर्नु आजको आवश्यकता हो ।

UNFPA launched the State of World Population 2020 report  “Against my will: defying the practices that harm women and girls and undermine equality”. The report identifies harmful practices around the world ranging from breast ironing to virginity testing; it focuses on the three most prevalent harmful practices: female genital mutilation, child marriage and extreme gender bias against daughters in favour of sons.

Nepal has one of the highest rates of child marriage in Asia – an estimated 40 percent of Nepali girls are married before the age of 18. Similarly, son preference is leading to an increase in the practice of sex-selective abortion and resulting in sex ratio at birth imbalances among certain population groups across the country. This document contains key messages of SWOP 2020.
