Aid Effectiveness and the Implementation of SCR 1325 in Nepal - Financing Inclusive Peace and Security for Women in Nepal
Actualizing the promises and potential of Security Council resolutions 1325, 1820, 1888 and 1889 requires intentional action at the national level by a range of stakeholders. SCR 1889, adopted by the Security Council in October 2009, calls on Member States, in partnership with key actors, to “specify in detail women and girls’ needs and priorities and design concrete strategies.”1 Effective implementation of these resolutions requires the development of truly gender-responsive aid in conflict and post–conflict settings.
The study recommends that a comprehensive needs assessment and costing of women’s security and peacebuilding take place as an immediate step forward in the post-conflict period and provides recommendations for strengthening the inclusion of gender-sensitive provisions in NPTF projects including: Cantonment Management, Rehabilitation of the Internally Displaced Persons and the Management of Electoral Processes. The study also includes recommendations from women’s groups and gender experts in Nepal for advancing the implementation of SCRs 1325, 1820, 1888 and 1889.
