UNWOMEN: Leaving no one behind: Women's equal access to justice and inclusive governance


The UN Women implemented project “Leaving no one Behind”, is part of the UNWomen Nepal Country Strategy for the years 2018-2021. The total budget is 4 million euros. The project is divided into two result areas. The first result area focuses on inclusive governance and access to justice by aiming to strengthen the capacity of duty bearers (authorities and government) to integrate gender equality objectives into policies and plans. The second result area focuses on strengthening the ability of excluded women's groups for economic and social participation. The additional grant concentrates on the measurement of transformative change in social and cultural norms through storytelling. The additional grant is based on the co-operation between UN Women and Finland. Its long-term goal is to prevent multiple and intersectional discrimination by influencing harmful social and cultural norms rooted in society. At the same time, the project creates a new monitoring model for transformative change. The medium-term goal is to influence the attitudes and behavioral changes of individuals and communities. The aim of the inception year is to develop a methodology for measuring the effects of permanent change and to gather a baseline for the project, while contributing to the new country strategy of UN Women in Nepal. The project continues to support Nepal's first National Action Plan on UN security council resolutions 1325 and 1820.
