Technical Assistance to Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction to ensure Effective access of Conflict Affected Persons to Victims Assistance Processes in Nepal

Funded by the IOM Development Fund (IDF), the overall objective of the project is to ensure effective access of Conflict Affected Persons (CAP)s to victim assistance programs in Nepal through established centralized database for CAPs assistance in congruence with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework Outcome 8, as well as to build capacity of key government institutions to provide effective access of existing services to CAPs. The project districts include Morang, Jhapa, Makwanpur, Chitwan, Kasaki, Gorkha, Rolpa, Rukum, Kailali and Kanchanpur. Under this project, the IOM developed a centralized database web portal for the past and ongoing CAPs assistance programs provided to the conflict victims by different service providers (I/NGOs, UN agencies and Govt.). Intensive research (both qualitative and quantitative) has been conducted in 5 project districts to identify the quality of reparation processes implemented by MoPR. Based on the findings, the project has developed a Training Module to bridge the gap and area for improved future reparation programs. Training based on the module was provided to the officials of the MoPR, Ministry of Women Children and Social Welfare and female representatives of Local Peace Committee of all the 10 project districts in different areas like, Human Right Based Approach, Transitional Justice, Gender and Conflict Sensitivity and Communication skills.
