Case Study: An Assessment of Gender and Women’s Exclusion in REDD+ in Nepal

This assessment was conducted by WOCAN and the Himalayan Grassroots Women’s Natural Resource Management Association (HIMAWANTI) Nepal in February 2012 to provide a review of the current REDD+ policy, processes and pilots in Nepal from a gender perspective, and to highlight the extent to which these have included or excluded women at the national and local levels. It also provides recommendations for how REDD+ initiatives can more effectively include women and attend to gender issues.

For this assessment, the study team visited three REDD+ related pilot project sites: ICIMOD-ANSAB-FECOFUN project sites, one in Dolakha District and one in Chitwan District, and the Climate Change and Partnership Program`s area in Lamjung District
