Nepal, being signatory to various international conventions, is legally committed to gender equality and social inclusion. Three of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are also closely related with gender equality and social inclusion (GESI), SDG 1 (elimination of absolute poverty and reduction of poverty by half), SDG 5 (gender equality and empowerment of women and girls) and SDG 10 on reducing inequality (within and between countries) by 2030.
The Constitution of Nepal envisions Nepal as an inclusive state and guarantees the right to equality for all its citizens.
