The UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) is currently focusing on This case study argues that despite the good intentions and increasing realization of the importance of social inclusion for poverty alleviation and lasting
peace, reflected in the PRSP, insufficient attention has been given to indigenous peoples’ issues in Nepal. The PRS process in Nepal has not been inclusive
enough of indigenous peoples and as a result, the final document, does not accurately reflect or address their fundamental concerns. The policies and measures
outlined lack continuity and have been largely cosmetic in nature. The failure of past efforts to improve the status of indigenous and low caste groups
is also acknowledged in the PRSP, but the following analysis shows that many of the strategies and programmes laid out in the PRSP perpetuate the same
problems which characterized past efforts. These shortcomings can be attributed to a combination of factors for which both the government and donors are
responsible, including: insufficient awareness of indigenous issues and their specific experience of discrimination; lack of development and under funding
of appropriate institutional structures; lack of participation and consultation of indigenous peoples in the design and implementation of poverty reduction
and development initiatives; the centralised nature of the Nepali state and general lack of political will. In a country where over 1/3 of the population
is from indigenous groups, the result of this has serious implications, both in terms of poverty alleviation and for the establishment of a basis for lasting
peace.
