Map of Nepal


Nepal is a small landlocked country situated between India and China. In recent years, two events have had a major impact on land issues in Nepal. Firstly, the 1996-2006 conflict to overthrow the monarchy and establish a Peoples’ Republic. Amongst other impacts, the war displaced hundreds of thousands of people, resulted in the outmigration of many young people and the country's new governance structure as of 2006, organised into seven provinces under a federalist structure of governance. Secondly, two severe earthquakes in 2015 which killed 8,700 people, injured 25,000, destroyed half a million homes, and left a further 265,000 houses temporarily uninhabitable.
