Community Self-Reliance Centre (CSRC)

Presence in: Nepal
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights, Environmental Justice

Founded in 1993, Community Self-Reliance Centre (CSRC) has been at the forefront of land and agrarian rights campaign in Nepal. CSRC educates and organizes people who are deprived of their basic rights to land and empowers them to lead free, secure and dignified lives. Our programmes have focused on strengthening community organizations, developing human rights defenders, improving livelihoods and promoting land and agrarian reform on behalf of the land-poor farmers. Since its establishment, CSRC has constantly worked to transform discriminatory and unjust social relations by organizing landless, land poor and marginalized communities to claim and exercise their rights.
CSRC believes in strong non-violent social movements led by land-poor farmers. Policy advocacy to advance pro-poor land governance and inclusive policies is a central part of CSRC’s work. CSRC believes in the power of people and collaborates with National Land Rights Forum (NLRF), a people’s organization of landless, tenants and smallholder farmers and its branches at districts and the community level. Currently, in collaboration with CSRC, NLRF has been facilitating land and agrarian rights campaign in 54 districts, with a total membership of 98,275.


Community Self-reliance Centre (CSRC) is committed to making the land-poor people self-reliant by supporting their ongoing struggle for ensuring their rights to land.
