Campaign of FOHRID on WTO and globalization PDF Print E-mail

Nepal is an agricultural country and almost 80 percent people live in the rural area, and 93 percent are dependent on agricultural production for their livelihood. Impact of globalization on agriculture, livelihood of the people and viewing it from human rights perspective is important when liberalization is dominant. In this context, FOHRID translated from English into Nepali "Planting the Rights Seed: A human rights perspective on agriculture trade and the WTO" for dissemination of customized knowledge. No one has raised the issue of agriculture trade and the WTO from the human rights perspective in Nepal. So, this publication was brought out to create public awareness. This has helped the communities, non-government and professional organizations for advocacy and lobbying to promote livelihood and human rights in Nepal. It may help to build up and promote rural sector by creating pressure for the formation of people centered policies and strengthening private sectors at domestic level.
