Nepal signed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the “CRPD”) and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the “Optional Protocol”) on 3 January 2008, and ratified them on 27 December 2009. The CRPD and Optional Protocol came into force for Nepal on 6 June 2010. A party to a number of international human rights instruments, Nepal is committed to the promotion and protection of human rights. By ratifying the CRPD, Nepal has demonstrated its deep-seated commitment to building an inclusive and empathetic society founded on equality and social justice. The Interim Constitution of Nepal, 2007 (the “Constitution”) guarantees human rights and fundamental freedoms for all. A range of measures have been envisaged and put in place in keeping with these constitutional provisions and international commitments.
