The signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord in 2006 between the Nepalese government and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) marked the end of the Civil War that started a decade earlier, but significant challenges to the peace process persist. We are leveraging on our expertise in building multimedia projects, facilitating dialogue, and collaborating with local partners to address these challenges and promote nonviolent conflict transformation.

Our programs in Nepal focus on five areas: democratic participation, reconciliation, access to justice and security, development and economic growth, and collaborative, inclusive leadership.
