This publication is the outcome of an extensive report written by WOCAN for ICIMOD as part of the scoping study on ‘Gender, Natural Resource Management and Climate Change in the Context of Inclusive and Equitable Sustainable Mountain Development in Nepal’ under HICAP. HICAP is implemented jointly by ICIMOD, the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research - Oslo (CICERO), and GRID-Arendal, in collaboration with local partners, and funded by the governments of Norway and Sweden. The authors would like to thank all the women and men from the remote villages of Nepal who participated in the fieldwork for this study as well as grassroots women leaders, members of NGOs and INGOs, staff of government departments, and independent researchers for their valuable time and inputs. Without their support this publication would not be possible.
