Gender Equality Results Case Study: Nepal - Community-Based Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project
Promoting equality between women and men and gender relations is relevant to the main aim of the project as well as to the project strategies. In this initiative, the focus was on gender equality and social inclusion, with an emphasis on inequalities among women and men, and among people from various castes and ethnic minorities.
The project developed a gender, caste, and ethnicity (GCE) strategy that sought to ensure the participation of women and ethnic minorities in decision-making processes, as well as their increased representation in leadership positions. It encouraged user committees led or owned by women and CBOs to participate in project activities for making positive changes in the lives of women and for their empowerment.
