UN Women Nepal continues its work to strengthen its support in the area of women, peace and security through a number of projects and initiatives, such as Ensuring a Participatory and Secure Transition (EPST), Strengthening Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Nepal: Towards implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) on United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCRs) 1325 and 1820 (SIWPSAN) and Gender Responsive Recovery for Sustainable Peace (GRRSP).  

 

In order to reinforce the ongoing efforts with regard to the implementation of the NAP on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820, UN Women and UNDP have been implementing a joint-project “Localizing Women Peace and Security Agenda in Central Terai districts of Nepal (GPI-CT)” supported by UN Peace Fund for Nepal (UNPFN), which contributes to an enabling environment and the institutional foundation required for gender sensitive peacebuilding in Central Terai region of Nepal. The overarching objective is to consolidate the gains of women's local peacebuilding efforts by improving and enhancing service delivery to conflict affected women and budgetary allocation for local resources which further contributes to the implementation of NAP in municipalities and select village development committees (VDCs). The project focuses on enhancing gender responsive planning and budgeting at the local level for better implementation and monitoring of NAP on women, peace and security (UNSCRs 1325 and 1820 which include: governance, security, and recovery). Through this pilot initiative the project intends to provide a model for the government for subsequent replication which can eventually contribute to enhanced demand and supply for better aligning commitments to achieve gender responsive local development planning with women peace and security agenda.

 

The project is aligned with Outcome 5 and 9 of the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2013-2017, where in development gains in Nepal are protected by addressing peace-building needs and conflict risks through inclusive dialogue and participation, social and economic empowerment, and reducing armed violence; institutions, systems and processes of democratic governance are more accountable, effective, efficient and inclusive. The project will contribute to: UNPFN Strategic Outcome 6, “An inclusive and gender-representative culture of dialogue and conflict transformation is expanded and strengthened contributing to conflict prevention and social cohesion during Nepal’s transitional peacebuilding process”. 

 

The GPI-CT project is designed to contribute to the UNPFN outcomes with the project specific outcome and outputs stated as below;

 

Project Outcome: Enhanced participatory and gender responsive planning and budgeting

processes at the local bodies (VDC, DDC and Municipality) for implementation and monitoring of National Action Plan on women, peace and security [UNSCRs 1325 and 1820]

 

Project Output 1.1: Demonstration of a pilot on how gender responsive planning and budgeting improves/ enhances service delivery for conflict affected women and budgetary allocations from local resources to further effective NAP implementation and monitoring in 2 municipalities and 2 DDCs in Bara and Parsa districts

 

Project Output 1.2: Conflict affected women and women leaders have the agency to influence the local planning processes and greater equality in access to leadership and decision making opportunity.

As a summative evaluation, the purpose of the evaluation is to examine programmatic progress of the results and achievements; it will also analyze how and to what extent these have affected outcome level progress. The evaluation will contribute to generating substantial evidence on results achieved, challenges to progress which will support in providing policy related feedback to demonstrating best practices on establishing environment and the institutional foundation required for gender sensitive peace building in Central Terai region of Nepal.

 

The final project evaluation will be conducted by an independent, external team/organization. It is mandatory undertaken as agreed with the United Nations Peace Support Office (PBSO)/ Peacebuilding Fund (PBF).

 

The evaluation findings and recommendations will be used by MoFALD to refine its GRB localization initiatives at the local bodies across the country. It will also reflect the local level GRB allocation of the project district. UNDP and UN Women country office could replicate the lessons learnt and good practices of the project in the future projects of the similar types in other conflict affected situation/setting.

UNDP’s ‘Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Programme (CDRMP) has been working with Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM), Ministry of Population and Environment for strengthening the capacity of DHM in quality data collection, analysis for Flood Early Warning Systems (EWS) for the dissemination of weather and stream-flow forecasts. DHM and UNDP/CDRMP have been working in joint collaboration towards the establishment of the telemetric stations in Rolwaling valley – Tsho Rolpa, Dolakha; Riu- Khola sub watershed, Chitwan, one AWS station in Kunathari, the downstream of Sot Khola subwatershed, Surkhet district. The installation of hydrological and AWS stations in Sindhupalchok district have been already started.Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM) monitors hydrological and meteorological activities in Nepal. DHM monitoring systems are primarily based on the guidelines provided by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The equipment that has been installed in the telemetric stations meet the WMO standard so as to acquire quality data.UNDP/CDRMP is planning to support DHM for upgrading 3 hydro-met stations in three districts namely Dolakha (Melung), Sindhupalchok ( Sarmanthang) and Surkhet ( Sot Khola- upstream- Gadhi). Considering the high vulnerability of the selected districts, Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM) has initiated activities in partnership with different stakeholders in collecting, analyzing and disseminating disaster preparedness programs with state of the art hydro met stations.These automatic stations have been instrumental to develop/ establish the Early Warning System (EWS) which is likely to save lives and valuable properties. Community Based Early Warning System (CBEWS), a people-centered approach to EWS, has strong training and awareness components, which will be instrumental in empowering the vulnerable to become climate resilient communities.The proposed stations are primarily designed for quality data collection for flood and general weather forecasting purpose. The weather and hydrological information can be utilized for increasing agricultural productivities and for developing climate smart agricultural system contributing to enhanced livelihood of the communities. Combination of such activities can provide scope for adaptation opportunities to climatic changes.Table 1 presents the Hydrological and meteorological stations that are proposed in three districts with the details of the selected instrumentation and stations.The hydrometric station will be equipped with staff gauge, radar-based water level recorder and rain gauge, Water level and rainfall data need to be transmitted on real time basis. All the stations need to be equipped with real time data acquisition system. The collected data needs to be linked with existing server of DHM with proper dissemination in the existing website and portal.Data received from the established system will be used to predict warnings, which need to be disseminated in real time basis to the public. With the knowledge awareness about these data, people will enhance their adaptability to the changing scenario of climate improving their agricultural practices.The station will be operated by DHM for maintaining long term hydrological and meteorological data. Besides hydrological and agro-meteorological modeling, the data will also be used for monitoring climatic variability and climatic changes.
