COVID-19 Recovery in Nepal: A Case Study of the Role of Women’s Leadership

This case study examines women’s rights organisations’ (WROs) leadership and participation in COVID-19 recovery planning in Nepal. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities and challenges faced by women and other marginalised groups in Nepal. There are examples of WROs’ leadership during the response and there are opportunities to build on these in the recovery from COVID-19.

The study focused on the ways in which WROs have been able to lead and participate in government-led COVID-19 recovery planning in Nepal, the barriers they face, and some of the good practices that can be supported and scaled up to support WROs’ leadership and participation in COVID-19 recovery.
