The major objectives of the workshop were as follows:

  • To produce declaration paper on prioritized issue and key policy messages with signature of entire participants.

Based on the voting scoreboard Gender Based Violence was identified as the major issue in both the districts. To address this major issue, 10-15 key policy messages were developed.  A five person’s committee was formed to monitor and assess the progress regularly which included (WCDO, Social Development Officer, District Governance Expert, DDC, NGO Federation, District Federation of Journalist, VDC Secretary and KDC as Secretariat) in Pyuthan and (WCDO, Social Development Officer, DDC, District Federation of Journalist, Women Network and SAC as Secretariat) in Surkhet.
