Nepal: Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women Project

The low status of women in Nepal can be traced to economic, legal, sociocultural, political, and institutional factors—which are interrelated, mutually reinforcing, and centuries old. The condition of women was exacerbated by the country’s caste system, as this defined access to resources and opportunities. The project aimed to improve the socioeconomic conditions of poor rural women through economic empowerment, legal empowerment, social empowerment and institutional strengthening and project management.

Nepal: Governance Support Program (Subprogram I)

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a $106.3 million grant on 22 October 2008 for subprogram 1 of the Governance Support Program (GSP 1). GSP 1 aimed to support the implementation of the government’s Local Governance and Community Development Program and was in line with the government’s priorities to empower disadvantaged groups, including women, and strengthen local government bodies to enhance governance in the context of devolution and a federal form of government eventually. ADB was keen to use a program cluster approach, which required the government and its development partners to implement gradual reforms over the medium term. ADB joined five other development partners under a joint financing arrangement to implement GSP 1.

Nepal: Rural Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Sector Development Program

The plan’s primary objectives were to reduce poverty, create jobs, restructure and rehabilitate infrastructure damaged during the conflict, and establish peace. The country strategy and program of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for Nepal 2005–2009 highlighted the need for strong policy reforms and continued assistance to help the country focus on the development agenda. It also emphasized the need for substantial increases in infrastructure investments in the rural areas. The Rural Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Sector Development Program consisted of program and project components aimed at supporting the Government of Nepal’s key agenda on inclusive growth and sustainable poverty reduction.
