Nepali business community commits to contribute to Nepal¹s sustainable development

 PRESS RELEASE

NOVEMBER 21, KATHMANDU

 

Nepal's business community has expressed its firm commitment to contribute to the country's sustainable development, helping it achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

 

Following a day-long seminar on "The role of the private sector in sustainable development in Nepal" on Tuesday, representatives of Nepal's top business associations and organizations announced the creation of a "Nepal Business Coalition for SDGs," which calls on all businesses to align with Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the UN Member states, including Nepal in September 2015. The conference was organized by UNDP, KOICA, Embassy of Republic of Korea to Nepal, Korean Alumni Association in Nepal, and UN Global Compact Nepal.

 

In what was a clear milestone in engaging the private sector, the conference concluded with six major Nepali business organizations signing Memoranda of Understanding with UNDP Nepal to collaborate on the SDGs. The organizations signing the MoUs include: Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI), Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI), Federation of Women Entrepreneurs' Associations of Nepal, Hotel Association Nepal, National Business Initiative and the Nepal Bankers' Association.

The coalition, fully backed up by these organizations, encourages private sector entities to adopt the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals as part of their business plans; collaborate to undertake joint initiatives to foster the achievement of the Goals; mobilize other relevant stakeholders and advocate for their contribution to achievement of the Goals; and jointly work on policy reforms to improve Nepal's business environment.

The Business Coalition for the SDGs is a voluntary group of likeminded enterprises, which understand the need to align their business operations with the SDGs and work with other actors in Nepal to achieve sustainable development. Businesses joining the coalition sign a declaration involving a formal commitment to the SDGs and highlighting the need for partnership to realize the ambitious
Goals.

 

Addressing the meeting, Vice Chair of the National Planning Commission Swarnim Wagle underlined how the achievement of the SDGs is not only a Government responsibility but a national priority, requiring partnerships for success, while also acknowledging that "a good place to start implementing the SDGs in Nepal is by aligning and adjusting existing sectoral strategies with the Global Goals."

 

UN Resident Representative Valerie Juliand said "We should not work to make money, but make money so we can do good work." and called for business with ethics as key to achieve the Goals.

 

Yam Kumari Khatiwada, Secretary at the Ministry of Industry said the private sector have a major role to play in Nepal's sustainable development as they have the huge potential to bring in innovation and resources. "The Ministry of Industry is committed to promote conducive environment for innovative business solutions in Nepal," she said.

 

"The government can't deliver on ambitious sustainable development promises on its own—partnerships with the private sector is the only way to bring the will into action," said Suraj Vaidya, President of the SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

 

We have to see the possibility of channeling all scattered efforts in order to make a powerful impact in Nepal for which responsive partnerships between government, private sector and donors are required," said Hyungkoo Kim, Country Director of KOICA Nepal Office.

 

Through the conference, the business community, the government and the international development partners gave a clear message that the private sector's profitability, their business practices and achievement of the SDGs are mutually reinforcing.

 

"The Nepal business community by engaging and committing itself to contributing to the SDGs is not only doing goo but will also do well" said Renaud Meyer, UNDP Country Director, highlighting a recent study estimating that the achievement of the SDGs would bring more than USD 12 trillion of business opportunities to the private sector. He also emphasized that —if the cost of achieving the Global Goals is high, it will likely cost even more to both countries and businesses to not achieve the SDGs. [From UNDP Nepal] 

Call for women’s representation and leadership in local governance

APRIL 21 | KATHMANDU

 I am contesting the upcoming election with my headscarf on, duly following the advice of my mother-in-law. But I have offered my full support to my daughter-in-law to contest the polls without headscarf on." Kausilya Tharuni, a participant from Bara district at the two-day national conference on women's leadership and representation

Kausilya Tharu is one of the 39 women participants contesting the local polls who came all the way across Nepal to participate in the national conference, 'Towards Planet 50:50-Enabling Women's Leadership and Representation in Local Governance', organised by the Election Commission Nepal, together with the United Nations and Sajha Abhiyan (Women's leaders' Coalition) on 20-21 April 2017.

With the promulgation of a new constitution that contains many positive provisions to advance gender equality and women's empowerment, as well as due to Nepal's national and international commitments for the same causes, there has been significant progress in the country in recent years. However, many serious challenges remain and a coherent approach among political parties is needed to ensure women's leadership and representation in local governance.  

The two-day conference is a response to identified shortfalls in terms of women's participation and representation. Various speakers have highlighted the message that women's participation is more than numbers and filling quotas, and that the country needs to aim for female representation and participation that substantially transforms decision making in the political sphere.

 

Speaking at the inauguration session on Thursday, Rt. Honorable Speaker of the Parliament, Onsari Gharti Magar, said that women's participation in local governance as voters is simply not enough. "What is more crucial is to push for greater leadership roles in the pursuit of national development."  

Chief Election Commissioner, Dr. Ayodhee Prasad Yadav, requested all political parties to encourage women's candidacy in all posts as far as possible. "We need to put an end to the existing socio-economic and cultural discrimination against women to see them in the leadership roles."

"Quotas help, special measures help, interest groups help, but it is when knowledge is put into practice that changes come," said UN Resident Coordinator Valerie Julliand. "Transforming policy into practice highlights the tangible challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. At the end of it all, we need to have women who want to come to the table – this requires everyone supporting women."

Women's political empowerment and equal access to leadership positions at all levels are fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a more equal world. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), ratified by Nepal in 1991, calls on state parties "to take appropriate measures to eliminate discrimination against women in the political and public life".

Similarly, the Constitution of Nepal (2015), Article 38-4, states that "women shall have the right to participate in all bodies of the State on the basis of the principle of proportional inclusion." Regardless, women continue to be significantly under-represented in political and electoral processes everywhere in the world – as voters, candidates, elected representatives or electoral administrators. Nepal is no exception.

Many of the candidates contesting the election from different districts shared a common message that there are still huge obstacles for women entering politics and this is something they should collectively fight, to enable more women leaders and representatives. "The barriers, however challenging, that stop women from entering into politics can be easily overcome if both women leaders and parties are committed," said Member of Parliament, Kunti Shahi.

The Government of Nepal (GoN) has announced 14 May 2017 as the date for election of local bodies and preparations are underway. The local bodies for which elections will be held include 481 Rural Municipalities, 246 Municipalities, 13 Sub- Metropolitan Cities and 4 Metropolitan Cities. These elections will result in at least 13,360 women being elected decision makers in 6,680 wards.

The conference, aimed at strengthening knowledge and capacities among both political actors and women from across Nepal, brought together over 300 women leaders from the 75 districts of Nepal who discussed how they could take maximum benefit from the opportunities provided by the new constitution, the electoral laws and political processes. Among these, 13 will contest for the post of mayor, 16 for deputy mayor, 5 for ward chair and 4 for ward member. If elected, they will contribute to the progress of recent years and strengthen Nepal's position as a leader on the issue of women's representation in politics.

In the words of UN Resident Coordinator Valerie Julliand, "when women prosper, all of society flourishes, and political inclusion and participation, as well as access to education, are instrumental in attaining prosperity." [UN]

Corruption is a serious threat to realization of SDGs, say Nepal¹s development partners

International development partners, the United Nations Development Programme, the judiciary and the academia in Nepal have called for stronger efforts from all quarters to prevent and fight corruption, which poses a serious threat to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

Speaking at an interaction programme organized by Law Campus with the support of UNDP, the representatives from donors’ community, UNDP and the Supreme Court said combating corruption is critical to meeting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

British Ambassador to Nepal, Richard Morris, said corruption and poor governance were constraining Nepal’s economic potential, posing a barrier to investment, growth and poverty reduction. “Foreign investors are deterred by practices that do not provide a level playing-field,” he said, “Successful anti-corruption efforts are an effective way to build investor confidence.” He rounded off his talk by applauding the dynamism, commitment and ambition of the young people in Nepal. “You can make this the country you want it to be,” he told the students at the programme.

 

Ambassador of the EU delegation to Nepal, Rensje Teerink, in her remarks, talked of the “social and moral” exigency of tackling the issue of corruption. She referred, notably, to Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index of 2015, which had ranked Nepal 130th out of 168 surveyed countries on the basis of corruption, as an illustration of the seriousness of the issue and the work to be done.

 

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Sushila Karki, also the Chief Guest at the event, highlighted some of the commitments and the achievements the country had made in the fight against corruption, with particular focus on the judiciary’s performance. She said that there were still hurdles aplenty in their path, and among these was the difficulty of putting together a strong, diverse workforce. “In Nepal, we have people who can’t find jobs, and jobs for which we can’t find people,” she said. The Chief Justice urged the students to put themselves forward and join the fight against corruption.

 

Sophie Kemkhadze, UNDP’s Deputy Country Director in Nepal, elaborated on how the SDGs represented a “transformative agenda” not just for Nepal, but the world at large. The costs of corruption, she said, are not merely in the abstract, there is a concrete price tag, where every year, a hefty $1.26 trillion is lost in developing countries, and $2.6 trillion globally to corruption. “Fighting corruption is not only an issue for the government but one in which each and every one of us have a role to play,” she said imploring the students to be part of an informed and responsible citizenry as well as reaffirming the UNDP’s commitment to anti-corruption efforts.

 

The interaction was organized with the support of UNDP through its Strengthening Rule of Law and Human Rights Protection System in Nepal Programme (RoLHR), the Government of Nepal, and the Embassies of Denmark, Norway and Finland.

 

A short interaction session followed the talks, where students raised questions on matters of corruption, sustainability and the law, which were answered by the speakers.

Regional conference highlights the need to address conflict-related sexual violence

Kathmandu, 27 September: Transitional justice experts and survivors from post-conflict countries, including Nepal, Cambodia and Guatemala have underscored the urgency for addressing pending cases of conflict-related sexual violence to secure lasting and sustainable peace.

Experts speaking at a two-day conference at the end of September on peer-to-peer sharing of lessons for addressing conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV), said many of the victims silently suffer and continue to live with the mental trauma, and will do so until a conducive environment is created to address the consequences of conflict-related sexual violence.

 

The conference sought to build the capacity of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence to articulate their concerns, speak up for their rights and advocate for addressing their specific needs. Peer-to-peer support experts from Cambodia and Guatemala shared the history of their countries' conflicts, how the issue of conflict related sexual violence was dealt with and their personal testimonies, which is expected to help countries like Nepal find workable solutions and roadmap for healing the trauma.

 

"If crimes are left unsolved, the trauma created during the conflict gets transmitted to next generation. It is very important that we let conflict affected people share their experiences to help heal their wounds. What we need here is a healing mechanism that follows proper legal and psycho-social techniques," said Paula Martinez Velasquez from Guatemala's Community Studies and Psychosocial Action Team (ECAP).

 

 

While Nepal has established a set of transitional justice mechanisms, they are inadequately mandated to fully address CRSV cases. Existing legal ambiguities around amnesty and the statutory limitation to report rape, which includes CRSV cases, are some of the areas that need to be addressed to make the mechanisms fully compliant with international standards. An amendment to the Act on Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Commission on Enforced Disappearance, therefore, is expected to fill this gap.

 

"The fact that the conflict related sexual violence survivors have not been officially recognized as conflict affected persons in Nepal is a serious issue. The survivors could not access any services under the government's Interim Relief Programme and continue to remain excluded and uncared for", said Suman Adhikari, Chairperson of the Conflict Victims Common Platform. "Most victims and survivors could not file their complaints to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission due to stigma and lack of sufficient support mechanism including the confidentiality measures."


 "Many people have suffered. They had to get on with their lives and with their families without the issues addressed," said Sita Dev Yadav, Honourable Minister of Peace and Reconciliation. "The Government, NGOs and bilateral organisations will have to provide crucial support to bring justice and dignity. On behalf of the Government, I will try my best to take positive steps towards initiating the healing process."

 

Organized by the Conflict-Related Sexual Violence Taskforce consisting of IOM, UN Women, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Resident Coordinator's Office, the conference held special significance for Nepal where many people still continue to suffer the consequences of human rights abuses that occurred during the 10-year armed conflict.


"This conference echoes the theme of the International Day of Peace celebrated in September, which was: Sustainable Development Goals: building blocks for peace. By addressing the psychosocial needs of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, we leave no one behind and in doing so, we move a step closer to achieving gender equality and supporting sustainable peace in Nepal," said Renaud Meyer, UNDP Nepal's Country Director.


"The UN remains committed to advocating for the official recognition of sexual violence survivors as conflict victims. We strongly believe that this will promote an understanding that survivors are not to blame for what happened and also open an opportunity for healing," he said.

युवा नेताहरु ! अलाप बिलाप कि कृयाकलाप ?

- सरगम भट्टराई

अाजभोलि एउटा एउटा भनाई सुनिरहन पाईन्छ मिडियामा : बूढाहरुले देशलाई निकास दिन सकेनन, अब युवाहरु अगाडि आउनु पर्छ, युवाहरुमा रहेको जोश जाँगर र बिज्ञता देशको लागि लगानी गर्नु पर्दछ।

जब जब पार्टीहरुका महाधिवेशन नजिक आउछन, यी आबाजहरु बत्तीको पुतली जस्तै एकै चोटी हररर आउछन, जब महाधिवेशन सकिन्छ, त्यहि संगसंगै यी आवाजहरु मथ्थर हुन्छन, कुहिरोको काग जस्तै क्षितिजमा हराउँछन। नेपालका सबैजसो राजनितिक पार्टीमा युवाहरुको कमि छैन: नेपाली कांग्रेसमा गगन थापा,प्रदिप पौडेल ,एमालेमा गोकर्ण बिष्ट, योगेश भट्टराई, राम कुमारी झाँकृ एमाअोवादीमा लेखनाथ न्यौपाने,हिमाल शर्मा आदि आदि। म प्रश्न गर्न चाहन्छु!

हो ,बूढाहरुले देशलाई निकास दिन सकिरहेका छैनन, यीनीहरु बाट धेरै आश पनि गर्नु हुदैन भन्ने तपाईहरुको कुरो जायज़ हो, तर तपाईहरु मध्ये धेरै जना केन्द्रीय नेतृत्वमा गईसक्दा पनि खोई त जनताको पक्षमा आवाज़ उठाएको?खोई त तराई बल्दा निभाएको? अनि खोई त कर्णाली कठ्यांग्रिदा राप बनेको? साँच्चै देश प्रति तपाईहरुको माया पलाएकै हो भने खोई त हुम्लाको दैलोमा पुगेको? देशमा बिकृति र बिसंगति मौलाईरहँदा खोई त युवाको संजाल बनाई संयुक्त खबरदारी गरेको? खोई त राम्रा कामहरुलाई सिर्जनात्मक समर्थन गरेको? खोई त नराम्रा कामलाई शशक्त खबरदारी गरेको?

बिगतलाई हेर्नुस: बूढा नेताहरुको हँ मा हँ मिलाएर तपाईंहरु कहिले टायर बाल्न जानु भो, कहिले मान्छे मार्नु भो त कहिले सार्बजनिक सम्पत्ति तोड़फोड़ गर्न पुग्नु भो अनि एउटा गुटको ललीपप पाएर उनैको पक्षपोषण गर्नु भो। म दोहोर्याएर भन्छु:

तपाईहरु घोक्रो फूलाएर दुई घन्टा भाषण गर्नु भन्दा दुई मिनेट सिर्जनात्मक काम गरेको भए अहिले बूढा गोरुहरुलाई दुत्कार्न पर्दैनथ्यो, सहि लाई सहि र गलतलाई ग़लत मात्र भनिदिएको भए आज तपाईहरु शिर्ष तहमा हुनुहुन्थ्यो, लोकतन्त्रको मिठो फल बूँढाहरु, तपाईहरु र तपाईका आसेपासेहरुले हैन आम जनताले खाईरहेका हुने थिए।

यसो भनिरहँदा मैले तपाईंहरुको शिर्ष तहमा पुगेर देश बदल्ने सोंचलाई पक्कै पनि अवमुल्यन गर्न खोजिरहेको होईन मेरो र मेरो उमेरको प्रतिनिधित्व गर्नेहरुको गुनासो यो हो कि,तपाईहरु जस्तो पढ़े लेखेको युवाहरुले भ्रष्ट र यथास्थितिवादी नग्न नेतृत्व लाई न त कुरी कुरी गर्न सक्नुभयो, न त गोकर्ण बिष्टहरु हरुको होष्टेमा हैंसे मिलाउनु भयो,तपाईहरुमा जोश थियो,सोच थियो र अवसर पनि थियो तर बूढाहरुकै दौराको तुना बनेर बस्नु भयो।

आज देशमा पश्चगामीहरुले टाउको उठाउनुमा वर्तमान नेतृत्वको असफलता हो कि होईन?राजनैतिक र निजामति कर्मचारीहरुको भ्रष्ट प्रबृर्ति हो कि होईन? हो भने भ्रष्टाचारको बिरुद्दमा दह्रो कानुन नहुनाले आरोपीले सजिलै मुक्ति पाउने र जेलबाट छुट्दा उल्टै फूलमालाले स्वागत गर्ने परिपाटीलाई तपाईंहरुले बढावा दिएको नभए के हो? हैन भने डाक्टर गोबिन्द के.सी.ले शिक्षण अस्पत्ताल बचाउन आमरण अनसन गरिरहँदा तपाईहरुले भ्रष्टाचार र कालाबजारी र छाडातन्न्त्र बिरुद्द खोई आमरण अनसन बसेको?

केही बर्ष अघि दक्षिण एशियाको ग़रीब देश भुटानले बिकासमा गुणात्मक फड्को मारिरहँदा नेपालमा तुईनको जिन्दगी बाँच्नेहरु र कर्णालीमा सिटामोल नपाएर मर्नेहरुको समर्थनमा खोई तपाईंहरु सड़कमा उत्रेको? दिल्लीमा अरबिन्द केजरीवालले छोटो समयमा दिल्लीको अनुहार फेर्दा, बिहारमा नीतिस कुमारहरुले बिहारको अनुहार बदल्दा, तपाईहरु के गर्दै हुनुहुन्थ्यो कुन्नि?

हो ,बूढ़ों गोरुले सधै जोतिरहन सक्दैन,तिनीहरुलाई अब बिश्राम दिदै युवाहरुले काँध थाप्नुपर्छ तर तिनै बूढा गोरुहरुलाई पोस्न राज्यकोषबाट अरबौं रुपैया भार पर्नेगरि सुबिधा बाँड्दा किन तपाईंहरु बोल्नु हुन्न? किन भुकम्प पिडितहरु हिउँले पुरिएर मरिरहँदा सरकारले अरबौं रुपैयाँ भार पर्ने गरि मन्त्रालय थप्दा आन्दोलन गर्नुहुन्न? यसै गरि अब पनि गफ बाहेक केहि नगर्ने हो भने तरुण गोरुहरुले पनि केहि गर्न सक्ने छैनन।

हो,तपाईंहरुले कार्यकारी पद नपाएर काम गर्न नसकेको भन्नुहोला,एउटा साधारण मान्छेको लागि तपाईहरु देशको कार्यकारी सरह हो, तपाईंहरुको सत्तासीनहरु संग पहूंच छ, शक्तिकेन्द्रहरु संग पहूँच छ जनतालाई त दुई किलो चामलका लागि पनि सि.डि.ओ. को सिफ़ारिश लिनुपर्छ हाम्रै नेपालका दुर्गम क्षेत्रमा।

युवा नेताहरु हो! हार्नेको कुनै इतिहाँस लेखिदैन, आउनुहोस जीतको बिगुल फुकौं, लोकतन्त्र सर्बांग नांगो नहुदै यसको लाज बचाउन प्रण गरौं,यथास्थितिवादलाई सिर्जना र साधनाले जितौं ,जनताको मुटुमा बस्ने काम गरौं, तपाईहरुमा बिद्दता र नैतिकता छ, त्यसैले दलगत स्वार्थ त्यागेर सत्यको साथ र असत्यको पर्दाफ़ाश गरौं। देश बर्बाद हुन बाट बचाउन तपाईंहरुले नगरे कसले गर्ने? अब नगरे कहिले गर्ने?

हो नेपाली कांग्रेसमा बूढाहरुकै बोलवाला छ, एमालेमा पनि बूढाहरुकै चुरिफुरी छ, एमाओवादीमा पनि नेतृत्वमा बूढाहरुकै दवदवा छ, मधेशबादी दलहरुमा पनि बूढाहरुकै चलखेल छ, तर किन तपाई युवाहरुको ठोस कार्ययोजना छैन? किन जोश र होस भएका युवा नेताहरु संग बिद्दता र शुद्धता हुँदा हुँदा पनि प्रतिबद्धता छैन? किन शुसिल कोईरालाहरु हजुरबाको उमेरमा पनि दा बन्छन? किन के.पी.वली र झलनाथ अनि प्रचण्डहरु सदाबहार सभापति र अध्यक्ष हुन्छन? किन गगन थापा,गोकर्ण बिष्ट र लेखनाथ न्यौपानेहरु ओझेल पर्छन? किन उज्वल थापाहरु तपाईको फ्रेम भित्र अटाउदैनन?

त्यसैले युवा नेताहरु हो! संसारकै उत्तम ब्यवस्था लोकतन्त्रको चीरहरण नहुदै गगन थापाहरु सभापतिमा किन नलड्ने? गोकर्ण बिष्टहरु किन पार्टी अध्यक्ष नहुने र लेखनाथ न्यौपानेहरु किन महासचिव नहुने अनि समृद्ध राष्ट्र नेपाल बनाउन किन प्रण नगर्ने? युवा नेताहरु अझै पनि सभापति, अध्यक्ष बन्न पाईन भन्दै अलाप बिलाप गर्ने कि कृयाकलाप गर्ने?
