  • Armed Violence Reduction and Strengthening Community SecurityArmed Violence Reduction and Strengthening Community Security
    Following the successful completion of the second Constituent Assembly Elections in November 2013, building on the accomplished peace milestones, like the integration of the former combatants and clearing known minefields, as Nepal moves ahead to consolidate peace and development gains, the task of violence prevention and strengthening community security in a selection of districts, identified as “hotspots” demands due attention.

  • Conflict Prevention ProjectConflict Prevention Project
    The People’s Movement II and subsequent signing of the 2006 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) brought about historic changes in Nepali society. It also ushered Nepal into a complex transition, and bringing to the fore many political challenges as well as social and identity tensions. Ensuring that this is a successful transition requires leaders to apply innovative approaches to complex problems and establish more collaborative relationship.

  • UN Interagency Rehabilitation ProgrammeUN Interagency Rehabilitation Programme
    Following the signing of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the Seven Party Alliance and CPN-Maoists on 21 November 2006, significant efforts have been made to rehabilitate former combatants of the “peoples’ war.” The CPA was followed by the Agreement on Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies (AMMAA), which outlined ways for monitoring arms and armed personnel.


Soon after the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in November 2006, the Maoist army and their weapons were placed in cantonments at 28 sites in Nepal. UNMIN, with support from UNDP, then proceeded to lead the verification of combatants within these sites and found 19,602 to be verified members of the Maoist army while 4,008 were disqualified either as minors or late recruits. Two years after the completion of verification process, after several rounds of negotiations, an action plan was signed by the Maoists and the Government of Nepal in December 2009 for the discharge and rehabilitation of the disqualified combatants. In a major step forward in the peace process, UNDP in partnership with UNMIN, UNICEF, UNFPA and ILO supported the discharge and rehabilitation of these personnel that to date represents one of the major achievements of the peace process.

Since late 2006, UNDP in Nepal has provided key technical support to the on-going peace process.
