Catalytic Support on Land Issues
PDF File Size: 879 KB | Download   
Land issues have existed for centuries and are deeply entrenched in the Nepalese society and linked to the structures of feudal land ownership and informal land tenure. Land issues are recognized as one of the root causes of the 10-year conflict. If left unaddressed, these issues could have adverse effects on the peace consolidation, political stabilization and socio-economic development of Nepal. Recognizing the importance of addressing land issues in Nepal for sustainable peace and in accordance with the priorities mentioned in the interim constitution and the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), IOM, UNDP and UN-Habitat, as participating UN organizations (PUNOs), have come together with their technical expertise to address the highly sensitive land
issues with impartiality and neutrality. The Catalytic Support on Land Issues Project is a two years project starting 15 March 2013, and financed by the UN Peace-building Fund, a global UN multi-donor trust fund supported by over 50 international donors and managed through the UN Peace Fund for Nepal. The PUNOs will work together with the concerned ministries of Government of Nepal (GoN) and other stakeholders to achieve their outcomes.
This report is the result of an internal evaluation conducted by a migration law expert from IOM HQ, Geneva and provides a compilation of findings and recommendations following a field visit in April, 2014. The evaluation looks at the relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of the project. Some of the strengths of the project include but are not limited to: the participation of all stakeholders, the excellent relationship among the PUNOs, between the PUNOs and MoLRM as well as with the donor, and a strong national ownership of the project. Some of the recommendations made in the report are: improved and strengthened efforts with political parties, increased participation of women, improved communication between the project and the land offices as well as to find a sustainable solution to one of the outcomes that is currently off track. With the exception of some concerns following the evaluation, the overall opinion is that the project satisfies relevance, effectiveness and sustainability.
