Conflict Related Sexual Violence (CRSV)

“Building the Foundation for Access to Justice and Reparation for Conflict Related Sexual Violence Survivors (CRSV)” is a joint project between the IOM and the United Nations Population Fund funded by the UNPFN completed its activities in December 2015. The overall objective of the project is to scale up conflict and gender sensitive services addressing post conflict needs of victims of sexual violence. Under this project the IOM developed and handed over the CRSV Case Management Protocol in the context of service provision programs in Nepal to support the MoPR to provide guidance on eventual standardization of existing and new data on CRSV in Nepal and to enable the creation of a centralized CRSV database. Furthermore, this Protocol offers practical advice on how to design and carry out ethical and victim-centric case management for survivors of CRSV in Nepal. The Protocol provides internationally recognized standards to guide the basic information documentation at the request of the survivor, and a survivor-centric needs assessment that can facilitate subsequent service provision and/or referral. Additionally, technical assistance to MoPR is continued to better ensure effective implementation of psychosocial counselling and support services for conflict victims including CRSV and community members as a whole. The targeted project districts are the districts selected by MoPR to roll out psychosocial counselling services i.e. Morang, Jhapa, Makwanpur, Chitwan, Kasaki, Gorkha, Rolpa, Rukum, Kailali and Kanchanpur.
