 In support of the CAMRIS-implemented, USAID/Nepal Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Activity, we seek a Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Expert for the upcoming USAID/Nepal Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Analysis.
 

The purpose of the GESI Analysis is to identify the most significant societal gender, caste and ethnic inequalities in Nepal and prioritize them to inform development of the new USAID/Nepal Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS). The study will also provide sex, caste, and ethnicity disaggregated statistics for social inclusion considerations along with recommendations of  ways the CDCS could address identified needs for empowering women and marginalized castes and ethnicities.  

The GESI analysis will consist of a literature review and primary data collection.  The analysis will be led by an experienced international Gender expert that has conducted similar analyses for USAID, a national GESI expert that is familiar with the Nepali context and issues that limit the ability of Nepali women, and certain caste and ethnic groups to realize their full potential, and several field researchers to assist with primary data collection.
