Saferworld has been working in Nepal since 2009 to improve peace, community safety and stability. In partnership with local organisations, we engage with civil society and marginalised groups including women and young people to advocate nationally for approaches to governance that take into account conflict drivers and gender inequality. We also help to develop community safety plans, and have conducted pioneering research into the relationship between Nepalese gender roles and violence.
In Nepal we are working on:
Gender - we challenge problematic gender roles and violence.
Community safety and security – we develop collaborative early warning systems to support responses that stop violence before it starts.
Supporting governance – we support improved governance by promoting transparency and accountability.
