Gender Equality and Social Inclusion

The project has developed a Gender Action Plan (GAP) that helps in mainstreaming GESI in developing climate resilient livelihoods in the project working areas. The DCRL project also emphasized integrating GESI across the project cycle. GESI will be mainstreamed in the development and revision of government policies and guidelines related to watershed management across three spheres of the government (local, provincial, and federal). At the field level, the project ensures meaningful participation of women, and people from socially excluded groups mostly Dalit, janajati, and other marginalized groups. User committees to implement the community-level activities will be formed inclusive. The project will prioritize women and people from socially excluded groups in capacity-building events, and women-friendly agriculture technologies will be introduced. The disaggregated data of the project beneficiaries will be maintained and disseminated accordingly.
