Abstract

This research entitled 'The challenges of localizing the Sustainable Development Goals in Gender Equality in Nepal' is an attempt to find out the key challenges of localizing SDG in gender equality. The research was descriptive method conducted through KIIs with provincial ministries and Offices, local governments and civil society organizations in Lumbini Province. This study was limited to 18 participants. The descriptive method was conducted through KIIs for exploring the key challenges of localizing gender equality and how to overcome those challenges. It was found that major challenges of localizing gender equality were data gaps to set baseline at province and local levels. The gender disaggregation isn't properly managed in planning, budgeting, monitoring and reporting systems. The gender equality is not mainstreamed in all SDGs indicators and targets as integrated inclusive indicators and targets with adequate resources. Therefore, the provincial and local governments should focus on data management and integration in planning, budgeting, monitoring with adequate resources. This article suggests some of the possible alternatives to overcome those challenges with the authors’ experience.
