Legislative Provisions Regulating Women’s Access and Ownership of Land and Property in Nepal
PDF File Size: 888 KB | Download   
Land is a scarce resource and hence contested. The demands to ensure land rights for everyone have come from all quarters. Yet, this valuable resource continues to be concentrated among the powerful, those with the means to do so, particularly men. It cannot be overstated that rights to land are undeniably important, more so for women. Women’s access to, use of and control over land are essential not only for enhancing their livelihood options and strengthening their bargaining power within the household and the community, but also for improving their access to financial resources and reducing domestic violence.
This report talks in depth about all of these aspects, including the legal provisions guiding women’s access to land and property in Nepal, the gaps in those policies, as well as the barriers that women face to access, own and control land. In doing so, the report also looks at examples from 10 different countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America so as to provide the Government of Nepal with recommendations to introduce progressive programmes and policies in relation to women’s land rights in the country.
