Barriers to Women’s Land and Property Access and Ownership in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.22 MB | Download   
Land ownership is a significant indicator of wealth, power, political and social security in Nepal. Despite this, up to 25 per cent of the country’s population is estimated to be landless. Land reform efforts carried out by the Government of Nepal have mostly concentrated on securing land rights of the family, without much regard for differences in land ownership of individuals within households. Over the past few years, consensus has emerged around the idea that there is a link between women’s land ownership and household welfare.
Based on the findings, this study provides a number of recommendations. First of all, it is imperative to remove legal barriers that hamper women’s access to land. Legal reforms should guarantee women’s equal inheritance rights without any form of gender bias.
