Search for Peace and Justice
Description: The video documentary portrays the impact of armed conflict on women and their roles in peacemaking initiatives. The documentary is part of the joint program by UN Women and UNDP on Enhancing Access to Justice for Consolidation of Peace Project.
Emphasizing on women's access to justice, the documentary captures the voices of women conflict victims from different parts of Nepal. It especially focuses on the need for the establishment of transitional justice mechanisms. It shows the contribution of women towards community peacebuilding through their active involvement in local peace groups.
The documentary also highlights national efforts that have been put in place especially with respect to women's representation at decision making levels and interim relief provisions for victims. However, the voices clearly reflect that these provisions are not enough. Moreover, the documentary has recommended actions for future and has provided a strong message that such armed conflict should not be repeated.

Description: Coordinated disaster preparedness and response activities in Nepal began in 2008 following the Koshi floods when the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the international humanitarian community, through the IASC and led by the Humanitarian Coordinator and OCHA rolled out the cluster approach for the first time in Nepal. Followed by INSARAG and MPAT simulation exercises, the GoN subsequently endorsed the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) in 2009. In 2009, the NRRC Flagship programmes were developed, providing the only joint strategic plan for long term risk reduction in Nepal, formulated and jointly agreed by the GoN, the IASC and the donor community.
A series of discussions and planning meetings were held by a joint task force led by the GoN, with OCHA developing and formulating the document, culminating in the formal "Guidance Note - Disaster Preparedness and Response Planning 2011".
