BARRIERS TO WOMEN’S LAND AND PROPERTY ACCESS AND OWNERSHIP IN NEPAL
PDF File Size: 1.22 MB | Download   
Property ownership is associated with social status and prosperity, as well as economic and political power.The most common sources of land ownership for women in all the districts are through husband’s earnings or dowry from parents. Patriarchy was found to be traditionally accepted, with men as the prime household decision makers. The study is aimed to study and understand the administrative, traditional and sociocultural practices that act as barriers for women to be able to exercise their rights over land.
The study identifies patriarchy and conservative social set-up as one persistent barrier to women’s land ownership in all the study districts.The study also observed the LROs in Kathmandu valley (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur) to assess their women friendliness, i.e. how well prepared these facilities were to meet specific needs of women.
