Earthquake Contingency Plan Nepal, 2022

Nepal is a high-risk country for natural hazards including earthquakes, floods, landslides, fires and drought. The hazards with the greatest humanitarian impact are earthquakes and floods.

susceptible to secondary earthquake effects, such as landslides, which can be exacerbated by excessive erosion of hill slopes and rock falls as well as heavy rainfall.

By acting prior to an imminent disaster based on predictive models, humanitarian action becomes more effective, efficient and dignified.

महिला विरुद्ध हिंसा मानवअधिकारको उल्लङ्घन हो। विश्वव्यापी रुपमा हरेक तीन जना महिलामा एक जनाले शारीरिक वा यौनजन्य हिंसाको सामना गर्छन् र त्यो अधिकांश उनी नजिककै व्यक्तिबाट हुने गर्दछ । घरेलु हिंसा र  दुर्व्यवहार भएको कुरा कहिलेकाहीँ बाहिर नदेखिए पनि दुर्व्यवहारजन्य सम्बन्धका संकेतहरुबारे हामीलाई जानकारी छ भने हामीले त्यसलाई चिन्नसक्छौं र सहयोग लिन वा दिन सक्छौं ।

Nepal’s Gender-Based Violence and Gender Equality-Related Funds: The Path to Effective Implementation

The study on the Operational Modality of Various Funds within Federal Governance assesses the status of 12 funds with mandates to respond to GBV and advance GE in Nepal.

The study reveals a serious gap between the rights and entitlements that are formally guaranteed to women under law in Nepal, and their ability to experience benefits from these funds.
