UNRCPD promotes Peace and Disarmament Education in Nepal’s Schools

10th February 2015

The United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Asia and the Pacific (UNRCPD) is assisting Nepal’s Ministry of Education to build the capacity of curriculum developers and textbook writers to integrate peace and disarmament education into Nepal’s school curricular materials. Launched in 2013 in post-conflict Nepal, this project reinforces efforts to cement peace at the national level by helping children and teachers understand and adopt non-violent ways of dealing with conflict, and ultimately change their behavior.
