Nepal, June 2011 - Former Secretary Ganga Awasthi, Ministry of Local Development

GNWP’s capacity building and formulation of local legislation and 1325 project is a decentralized and localized  approach to SCR 1325 and 1820 implementation. It broadens the discussions on SCR 1325 and 1820 to include critical local actors such as provincial governors, mayors, local councilors, grassroots women’s organizations, local police and military officers, provincial judges and prosecutors, religious leaders, tribal leaders and community elders. The project elevates awareness-raising into concrete actions for implementation and  develops local legislation and policy documents that supports effective implementation of SCR 1325 at the most local level of governance. It is a bottom up alignment of local, national and international policies and community strategies that has a great multiplier effect and as a result ensures local ownership, participation and concrete actions.  The  first phase of the project in Nepal was implemented in June, 2011. The second phase will be carried out in May 2012.
