The opinions expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).The economic situation varies among indigenous peoples, who have adopted one or a combination of livelihoods including foraging, horticulture, agriculture and industrial activities. They continue to maintain their social and political structures at different levels. As of 1998, different groups of indigenous peoples have the highest and lowest
proportions of people living below the poverty line. The Newars are exceptional because they are highly urbanized and concentrated in the capital city, Kathmandu. The Limbus, who lost their traditional land tenure system called Kipat in the 1960 rely mostly on farming and are the poorest of the poor.Indigenous peoples of Nepal have been living in Nepal since time immemorial. The influence of the Hindu religion, society and culture began to intensify in indigenous peoples' society after the restructuring of the society of the Newars into 64 castes. This caste division was based on division of labour (but not on varna, i.e. Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaisya and Sudra) and purity from pollution of water and food.Nepal has accepted many international human rights instruments and/or has made international commitments that are not legally binding, including the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights, Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities and Declaration on Religious Tolerance, Beijing Declaration and Plan of Action, Durban Declaration and Plan of Action, UN Decade on Indigenous Peoples Issues, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
