Gender based violence is a widespread problem in Nepal with negative consequences on equality, peace and development. In this context, the Government of Nepal (Council of Ministers) based on the decision of 2066/5/26 (September 9, 2009) has declared 2010 as the “Year Against Gender based Violence.” Under the convenorship of the Chief-Secretary, Government of Nepal, a seven member inter-ministerial committee prepared the Action Plan for the Year Against Gender Based Violence. This committee formed a technical committee for expert and technical assistance. This task of developing the action plan has been led by the Office of the Prime Minister and the Council of Minsters but the implementation has to be by different agencies, depending on the nature of the activities, in a coordinated manner.
