The quest for achieving gender equality through policy intervention has led to the design and implementation of various policy approaches worldwide. Building on the merits and limitations of the previous approaches, Women in Development (WID), Gender and Development (GAD), and Gender Mainstreaming, the more recent policy approach - Women, Culture and Development - advocates a comprehensive and context-driven approach for achieving gender equality. The panel examines conceptual-structural limitations of and operational obstacles of gender policies in Afghanistan and Nepal and makes structural and policy recommendations.
