NATIONAL FORUM FOR ADVOCACY NEPAL (NAFAN)

राष्ट्रिय जनवकालत मञ्च नेपाल

Rational

There was lack of a National level advocacy network for natural resource management, poor people, biodiversity, environment justice and access of marginalized communities and gender prior which led  to the establishment of National Forum for Advocacy, Nepal (NAFAN) in July 2004.However, some of the non-governmental organizations have successfully advocated and persuaded the government to change some policies and legislations relating to forestry, women's property rights and consumer protection issues. Some of these positive policy changes will have long- term impact on the protection and promotion of rights of the underprivileged, marginalized communities and women. Although some of the groups which joined hands and launched the movement for ensuring access to natural resources and benefit sharing arising out from the utilization of natural resources, and property rights for women they faced tough time during the movement. And the members of civil society organizations do realize that Advocacy in isolation does not produce many results. Since then the need for a national level network to   protect and promote the interest and human rights of different marginalized sections of Nepalese society was strongly felt and National Forum for Advocacy, Nepal (NAFAN) was introduced.
