Nepal: Position Paper on Indigenous Women’s Land Rights

We, the indigenous women of Nepal have come up with this position paper on indigenous women’s land rights in order to develop common understanding on our collective and individual land rights and to make our positions on indigenous women’s land rights clear to the state and the government (federal, province and local), private companies, non-governmental organizations, women rights leaders and activists, indigenous peoples’ movements and organizations, international development partners and others; and to strengthen and advance powerful movements from community to national to international levels on the recognition and protection of our rights to our lands, territories and resources as integral part of indigenous peoples, and as women with individual rights affirmed by international human rights instruments.
