• Recognising that women and girls are at greater risk of multiple forms of discrimination, the project aims to protect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities in Nepal and enhance their capacities, in particular in ensuring that policies are gender-responsive through a range of interlinked and reinforcing interventions. The project will do so by producing high quality disaggregated data on persons with disabilities; by strengthening the capacity of disabled people’s organisations (DPO) to lead policy advocacy, demand accountability and address stigma and discrimination; and by supporting the development of an evidence-based draft Policy on Persons with Disabilities in line with international standards in Province 7.
