CFPs for implementation of Gender-Based Violence Prevention & Response Project in Nepal
UNFPA, United Nations Population Fund, an international development agency, invites qualified organizations to submit proposals for the implementation of the Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response Project in Nepal, Phase II.
In Nepal, UNFPA works with the government and other partners to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.
All forms of gender-based violence and discrimination against women and girls are reduced in two provinces in Nepal.
An indicative budget for each outcome is as follows and should not exceed: USD 2.9 million (Outcome 1), USD 2 million (Outcome 2), USD 590,000 (Outcome 3).
Interested organizations are requested to submit their proposal consisting of 3 sets each of the Technical Proposal and Financial Proposal.
Women and men, including girls and boys, increasingly prevent, report and address gender-based violence;
Local governments, legal authorities, and health facilities provide effective (multi-sectoral) survivor-centred responses to Gender-Based Violence; and
Local, provincial, and federal governments adopt and implement policies and budgets for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
