Creative Development Society-Nepal(CDS) was established in 2050 B. S. (1993) in order to help improve the socio-economic and cultural situation of backward and poor people. This is a non-partisan, non-discriminatory and non-religious organization serving the marginalized, disadvantaged and resource poor community.

Since efficient and optimum resource mobilisation is not possible only by the government sector, role of non-government organizations has been witnessed to be pivotal in sensitizing and creating awareness among all sections of the society. Guided and motivated by this very phenomenon, a pragmatic team of social workers, activists, researchers, and professionals initiated the creation of this organization in order to complement and supplement the national plans, policies and priorities of His majesty’s Government of Nepal. The activists, who are well acquainted and familiar with the life and blood of the society, have been instrumental in transforming the attitudes and understanding within the society since the establishment of this organisation.


CDS-Nepal has been serving the community by mobilising the unused and underutilized resources available within the society. It has also undertaken significant activities that have enhanced the production and productivity of the economy as a whole. In the mean time, it has helped the society in creating awareness through advocacy, and strengthening the leadership capability of the hitherto excluded and disadvantaged groups. Empowerment through peoples’ participation has been the significant achievement of CDS- Nepal, so far.

“Strengthening Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Nepal: Towards Implementation of National Action Plan on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820”

The decade long armed conflict severely affected the Doti district. A total of 1,558 people were killed in the Far West from 1996 to 2006. Similarly, 6,758 people were displaced, 60 disappeared and 65 were left disabled due to the conflict. The conflict damaged physical infrastructures, community level service centres which made access to services; justice and overall development were thus further undermined. Doti has a male dominated society. Women suffer from both gender-based violence and domestic violence. Female property ownership is very low. Similarly, women are less involved in economic activities and mostly confined to domestic work (farming).  The participation of women in civil services and in politics is also very low. Gender and caste based discrimination, residue of conflicts remain serious obstacles to ensuring peace and sustainable development. 

The project aims to strengthen local level implementation of Nepal’s National Action Plan (NAP) on United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) 1325 and 1820 through innovative strategies that promote women’s participation in peace, security and governance processes. The specific objectives of the project are (1) to enhance the collective capability of national and local level government and other relevant stakeholders to implement and monitor the NAP on UNSCRs 1325 and 1820; (2) to economically and socially empower conflict affected women and former combatants in three districts through comprehensive assessment of their needs and their operating environment, and innovative programmes; and (3) to enhance the leadership and participation of women in key decision-making structures in the project districts.
