The proportion of women aged 15-49 years who make their own informed decisions regarding sexual relations, contraceptive use, and reproductive health care is average. There is a growing practice in the community where women participate in decision-making to give birth to a child but unable to make decisions on their own. But people still hesitate to discuss openly about sexuality and reproductive health. In order to reduce this, the municipality and  ward will organize training on public awareness and empowerment.

Scoring Process:

The finding is based on the LNOB Nepal consortium’s initiative on SDG monitoring adopting Community Score Card (CSC) focusing specific indicators under SDG goals 4, 5, 10, 13, 16 and 17 considering dire needs on improving progress on these goals.  As part of the community scorecard, community people and local government authorities make efforts in identifying progress and gaps in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. In the process of CSC, separate rankings are prepared for communities, duty bearers and there was a commonly agreed score based on interface meeting between the right holders and duty bearers. The differences in rating present condition by right holders and duty bearers’ claim and future expectations on changes by both groups were later adjusted based on mutual understanding and discussion in the interface discussions. It indicates that this community-led participatory monitoring supports in providing more realistic tracking of the progress and expectations to avoid future conflict and promote collaboration and trust.

5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world.

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.
