Nepal

The project “Enhancing Social Protection System: Towards Investments for Results in Nepal” was initiated in 2019 and will continue until 2023. Their aim is to support the government at different levels in implementing and monitoring gender-sensitive and disability-inclusive social protection systems while ensuring financial sustainability.

These objectives are pursued by increasing governments and stakeholders’ capacity to plan, budget, implement and monitor the extension of contribution-based social protection systems and programmes, overcoming challenges such as informality.

Project partners

In Nepal, the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF) – one of programme’s global actors – is represented by We Social Movements (WSM). The Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Finance, the Social Security Fund at Federal, Provincial, and local Levels are the co-implementers of the project in the country.
