Unpaid Care Work Programme: Nepal Progress Report (2012–13)

Nepal is one of four focus countries within the Unpaid Care Work Programme of the Accountable Grant. IDS is partnering with ActionAid International (AAI) to help each of the four ActionAid countries to develop and implement an advocacy strategy on making unpaid care work (UCW) visible in public policy, as well as integrate concerns about unpaid care into each country’s programming. The IDS Unpaid Care Work Programme uses an action learning methodology to look at what works and doesn’t work in making the care economy visible. This report covers the progress of the programme in Nepal over the first year and a half of the four-year programme.
