  • Ecosystem based Adaptation in Mountain Ecosystems in Nepal

    Nepal’s national economy and people’s livelihoods largely depend on natural resources and ecosystems services. These are increasingly negatively influenced by the effects of climate change, including increased variability on water availability, extreme weather events and natural disasters. Drought, flood, glacial lake outburst floods, avalanches, landslides and forest fires are some climate related disasters that Nepal experiences. In response to this, the Government of Nepal’s National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) and other national strategies and action plans have recognized that immediate actions are needed to minimize climate risks to society, economy and ecosystems.

  • Following the signing of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the Seven Party Alliance and CPN-Maoists on 21 November 2006, significant efforts have been made to rehabilitate former combatants of the “peoples’ war.” The CPA was followed by the Agreement on Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies (AMMAA), which outlined ways for monitoring arms and armed personnel.

  • Crisis Prevention and Recovery Support to Nepal

    The Crisis Prevention and Recovery Support to Nepal (CPRSN) project aims to provide support to UNDP Nepal in two phases, with the goal of strengthening the promising but still fragile peace process.

  • The writing of a new Constitution through the Constituent Assembly (CA) was a central pillar of the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA), which ended the decade long conflict in 2006. Subsequent elections to the CA have produced a diverse and inclusive body. Accommodating diverse sets of aspirations requires knowledge and expertise. In this context, the Support to Participatory Constitution Building in Nepal (SPCBN) aims to bring international expertise to assist the CA secretariat and Assembly members assess and reach important decisions.

  • Conflict Prevention Programme

    The People’s Movement II and subsequent signing of the 2006 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) brought about historic changes in Nepali society. It also ushered Nepal into a complex transition, and bringing to the fore many political challenges as well as social and identity tensions. Ensuring that this is a successful transition requires leaders to apply innovative approaches to complex problems and establish more collaborative relationship.
