The Department for International Development (DFID) through its Operational Plan is committed to support Nepal in its efforts to ensure communities can live in safety and security. Nepal’s own commitments in this area are particularly enhanced by the National Human Rights Action Plan (2011-2014), and, of special interest to the UK, the National Plan of Action Against Gender-Based Violence.

DFID’s proposed IP aims to improve security and access to justice for poor and traditionally excluded people, especially women and girls. It has been designed on the basis of extensive analysis that is set out in the DFID ‘Security and Justice for the Poor’ (SJ4P) Business Case.

The IP is a major initiative coordinated by a Board convened by the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Government of Nepal that aims to ensure inter-related initiatives are mutually reinforcing, notably on the Government and UK priority of tackling Gender-Based Violence.

The overall programme approach involves interlocking elements of:

a)         community-level awareness-raising about laws and services, and the facilitation of dialogue with state institutions;

b)         modernised and context-specific facilities and equipment for better public service delivery by state institutions and;

c)         improved institutional systems of resource utilisation, performance management and oversight.

The overall programme will be holistic across hard Facilities and Equipment (F&E) and soft (Capacity and Skills Development, Police-Public Partnerships, Community Awareness-raising and Social Development etc.) elements. Institutional beneficiaries (Nepal Police and targeted state/ non state organisations) will be able to better service communities who will have a greater access to, and awareness of, the services proposed. Long term results will centre on the security and access to justice experienced, and perceived, by the poor and traditionally excluded, through improved delivery of service to the communities, increased level of awareness of services offered and thereby improved access. Disaster resilience and climate change considerations will also be cross-cutting priorities across the project investments.

1.1.     About the Modernisation and Improvement of Policing Project

Under this programme, UNOPS is to implement support to the component: Modernisation and Improvement of Policing Project (MIPP). The MIPP is primarily focused on the Nepal Police, but will likely also encompass some related security and justice services in the targeted district. The MIPP will modernise, tailor and help sustain high quality service delivery through improved infrastructures and systems of resource utilisation, performance management and oversight. The elements would be to:

a)         Identify and prioritise F&E required for improved public service delivery for access to justice in approximately 25 districts determined by GoN in collaboration with DFID;

b)         Procure building refurbishment, civil works, specialised and non-specialised equipment and supplies;

c)         Procure forensic equipment for the central laboratory;

d)         Implement the construction, O&M plans;

e)         Provide technical advisory services related to performance management, improvement and oversight.

The project will be implemented over a 4 year period, through three operational segments, in up to 25-28 districts. It is envisaged that, in the latter part of the project, implementation will be handed over to the GoN with UNOPS taking on a technical advisory role.

The primary focus will be units of the Nepal Police, but complementary work would deliver public-facing improvements to justice-related services provided by District Administration Office, Women and Children Development Offices and, conceivably prisons.
