Power to the People: A Case Study on Participatory Local Land and Natural Governance in Nepal

From 2014 until 2016, the Community Self Reliance Centre implemented an adaption of Namati’s legal empowerment approach to community land protection in four communities in Nepal, with the goal of piloting a strategy for successfully addressing challenges of landlessness in the country. In early 2018, Namati undertook an assessment of the work for the purpose of understanding if and how the program made lasting impacts within the participating communities. This assessment report is a detailed account of their findings.
