Saferworld has been working in Nepal since 2009 on governance, public security and peacebuilding. With partners we engage with civil society and marginalised groups including women and young people to push the government to adopt policies and approaches that promote peace and gender equality. We also help ensure that people have access to inclusive and accountable security, and provide evidence of the links between gender, conflict and insecurity.
In Nepal we are working on:
Gender, peace and security – we challenge approaches to gender that perpetuate violence and conflict, and we promote the inclusion of women.
Governance, security and peacebuilding – we promote inclusive, transparent and accountable governance.
Conflict-sensitive development – we work with communities to ensure that their concerns are heard and that development efforts do not cause harm or worsen tensions.
