Identification, Verification and Recording (IVR) of Informal Land Rights in Nepal
Principal organisations: Community Self-Reliance Centre (CSRC)
Community Self-Reliance Centre (CSRC) facilitated the Identification, Verification and Recording of Informal land rights (IVR) model in collaboration with municipalities, the Land Issues Resolving Commission (LIRC) and the Federal Ministry of Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation (MoLMCPA) in Nepal. CSRC, the National Land Rights Forum (NLRF), CARE Nepal, UN-Habitat and local government worked together to address the challenge of informal land tenure in 319 localities. Four local governments identified 18,400 landless households and 79,344 households with informal land tenure using the IVR model. As of December 2021, CSRC has facilitated the issuing of 25,496 temporary land certificates for informal and landless families using the IVR model. CSRC and partners continue to facilitate the mapping and recording of land parcels to provide temporary land ownership certificates.
