The balance between development initiatives and community rights is critical. A key issue is the meaningful participation and free, prior and informed consent of marginalised communities. Without these, the result can be increasing poverty and migration, leading to denial of the right to development. Disputes around land and access to lands continue to be an issue of great concern in Nepal. My Office has noted some positive steps, including a mandamus order by the Supreme Court on 6 May 2009,
which directs the government to implement the fifth amendment to the Land Act of 2001 relating to the land ceiling. It also orders government authorities to distribute seized land to freed Kamaiyas,
Dalits and Janajatis as provisioned by the law, and report to the Court on the implementation of the Act. Many hopes reside in the High-level Land Reform Commission that was set up in December 2008, but its “on-hold” status has given rise to some concern. OHCHR-Nepal’s regional offices continue to work with groups such as Haliya and Kamaiya to promote their rights and to ensure non-discrimination.
