The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal)
commends all actors who participated in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process thus far for their commitment to this important review and notes the positive spirit of collaboration and mutual understanding among all stakeholders in Geneva. Particularly, noteworthy was that the high level Government delegation was well-prepared for this review. The human rights situation of Nepal was reviewed for the first time under the UPR mechanism and the draft report was released last week. The UPR has provided Nepal with the opportunity to discuss its human rights objectives and challenges with other member states of the United Nations. The latter made recommendations
regarding various aspects of human rights promotion and protection in Nepal, including with regard to eliminating caste-based discrimination, tackling gender-based violence, ensuring accountability for human rights violations, and strengthening national human rights institutions.
