AID MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR NEPAL
Significant and targeted investments in youth are required for Nepal to reap the benefit of the demographic dividend. The programme will support implementation of a comprehensive, gender-responsive sexuality education through capacity building of teachers and by linking adolescents with sexual and reproductive health services and information through information corners in schools, community learning centres and life skills.
UNFPA Strategic Plan Outcome 2: Every adolescent and youth, in particular adolescent girls, is empowered to have access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, in all contexts. The specific needs of young people, particularly adolescents, tend to be neglected as they transition from childhood to young adults. Moreover, discriminatory gender and socio-cultural norms are inclined to under-value girls and do not recognize the positive contributions they can make to society and economic growth if provided with the same opportunities as boys. Significant and targeted investments in youth are required for Nepal to reap the benefit of the demographic dividend. UNFPA will partner with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) in Nepal to continue to support the implementation of comprehensive sexuality education that is consistent with the evolving capacities of adolescents and their needs in primary and middle schools. UNFPA will also collaborate with diverse partners and stakeholders, including the private sector, media, and academia, to advocate for greater investment in youth empowerment, and in improving youth participation in sustainable development, humanitarian action, and in sustaining peace processes.
This project contributes to UNDAF Outcome 2 on Social Development, and focuses on “improved, equitable access, availability and utilization of quality basic social services for all, particularly for vulnerable people.”
