Nepal has a progressive legal framework for the protection of women’s rights which aims to create an enabling environment for gender equality. Efforts are now needed to ensure effective implementation at local and provincial levels in light of the introduction of the federal system in 2017. This year the N-Peace CSO Small Grants will support the strengthening of implementation of laws and policies that protect the rights of women and promote gender empowerment; this includes policies on gender-based violence, chhaupadi, the dowry system, truth and reconciliation and discrimination of marginalized groups.
