Mainstreaming Gender and Climate Change in Nepal


March 2013


This working paper analyses the extent to which gender differences are reflected in the development of policies and plans for adaptation to climate change in Nepal, and examines opportunities and progress made towards mainstreaming gender into the policies. An interesting finding is that despite there being an understanding of the relationship between gender, poverty, and vulnerability with regards to climate change, there have been insufficient efforts to incorporate gender analysis into the development and implementation of climate change laws. The study recommends a set of mechanisms that could help address the mainstreaming of gender in climate change policies in Nepal
