Crisis Prevention and Recovery

  • Conflict Prevention Project

    UNDP’s Conflict Prevention Programme (CPP) is working on the two complementary pillars of promoting collaborative leadership and dialogue amongst Nepalese leaders and institutions, and mainstreaming conflict sensitivity and the ‘Do No Harm’ approach into development programmes.

  • Crisis Prevention and Recovery Support to Nepal

    The Crisis Prevention and Recovery Support to Nepal (CPRSN) project aims to provide support to UNDP Nepal in two phases, with the goal of strengthening the promising but still fragile peace process.

  • Armed 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.

Closed Projects

  • UN Interagency Rehabilitation Programme

    UNIRP’s main objective was to support the transition of the discharged VMLRs from military to civilian life by providing them with training and education to access employment and livelihood opportunities.


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.
