Sustainability in Mountain Tourism: Perspectives for the Himalayan Countries

by Patricia East, Kurt Luger & Karin Inmann

Behind the myth of Nepal as a hospitable Shangri La is the reality of 300,000 tourists pouring into this little mountain kingdom each year and the environmental and cultural damage that mass tourism brings.
How can tourism in the Himalayan countries make use of nature without causing damage to the fragile ecological balance? How can mountain communities derive genuine benefit from the tourism industry?
In 1998 a conference of 24 Asian and European experts discussed these urgent problems. This book collects together all the lectures given at that conference.

He tells why he loves Nepal and highlights his concerns about the future of the country.

"Interesting stories and information" - The Independent (Kathmandu).

Corporate Governance and Financial Sector Reform in Nepal

By Dr. Tilak Rawal

In 2000 the World Bank argued that the central constraint on the Nepal's development over the last few decades has not been the paucity of resources, but the lack of effective governance and well functioning institutions which can adequately perform the functions which are essential for a coherent economic development process. This book examines the crisis in Nepal's financial institutions which, he argues, need bold pre-emptive measures to avoid insolvency and worse.

Dr Tilak Rawal is the governor of the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB).

Decision Making in Village Nepal

by Casper J Miller, SJ

-- How do farmers residing in the hill regions of Nepal make their decisions about planting crops, marrying off their offspring and other everyday affairs?
-- How does a decision made by a single farmer affect national growth and development?
-- How do human relationships at the family level affect the entire ecosystem, which can eventually make or mar the future of the entire country?
This book tries to answer such questions. It is an account of a penetrating investigation into the context, process, nature and technique of decision making among farming families.
Since the majority of Nepalis belong to farming families, understanding the dynamics of such decision making allows development planners and workers to better facilitate people's decisions to participate in local development.
The author, "Cap" Miller, is a Jesuit priest who has lived in Nepal since 1958 and has devoted his life to serving Nepal and its people. He is the author of several books including Faith Healers of the Himalayas (also distributed by Pilgrims Book House).

Foreign Employment for Women: Challenges and Opportunities

Translated by Nabin Singh

In late 2002 the Acting Prime Minister of Nepal, Dr Prakash Chandra Lohani announced that the government would open foreign job markets to aspirant women workers, doing away with the current conditional access.

"The new Foreign Employment Act, which is at the draft stage currently, will have provisions that provide equal opportunities, like that for men, to women to earn their livelihood abroad," he said.

Nonetheless, he added, the government would scrutinise the job before granting such permission to ensure that their labour, human rights and interests are protected there.

This book is a collection of articles which explores the traditional limitations on foreign employment of Nepali women, the advantages and disadvantages of working abroad, the new government policies, and finally the experience of Nepali women who have worked in foreign countries.

Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Director

This book looks at human rights as an intrinsic part of development--and at
development as a means to realizing human rights. It shows how human rights
bring principles of accountability and social justice to the process of
human development. Gross violations of rights, both loud and silent,
persist. This report explores the new rights agenda for the 21st
century--and proposes bold new approaches to political and economic

In the Name of Development: A Reflection on Nepal

by Nanda R. Shrestha

This book focuses on how development victimizes people from different walks of life. Unlike many other books on third world development, this book serves as a voice to the voiceless, the silent victims of development. It highlights real life stories rather than lifeless data as indices of development.

The author passionately attacks the development policies promoted by the US in Nepal. Giving numerous examples from the life stories of individual Nepalese, he shows that both the Nepalese economic winners and losers are victims the development process. Some of the issues highlighted include: the growth of prostitution and Freak Street pot culture, the increasing poverty of the Nepalese poor, and the subordination of Nepalese elites to Westerners.

'If the measure of a book's success is an ability to involve the reader and to arouse emotional reactions, then In The Name of Development: A Reflection on Nepal is successful..' -- Ed Burgess, Former Peace Corps Regional Director.

Nanda R. Shrestha is Associate Professor in the School of Business and Industry at Florida A & M University in Tallahasee, Florida.

Naga and Garuda: The Other Side of Development Aid

by Rudolf Hogger

Naga and Garuda are the most prominent figurres appearing on the toranas above Nepali temple doors. They represent two different kinds of spiritual forces within the human being, forces that are contradictory and complementary at the same time. Hogger relates the archetypal symbolism of Naga and Garuda to the practical realities of development co-operation. He illustrates the decisive role that Naga and Garuda forces are playing in local as well as international development work. Meaningful development will always depend on both: the competitive interaction and the complementary unity of our instinctive commitment (Naga) and our detached reflection (Garuda).

Nepal's Tourism: Uncensored Facts

by Diwaker Chand

Taking an unprecedented historical approach, author Diwaker Chand presents an uncensored and bona fide examination of tourism -- past, present and future. Interviews with living historians are presented. This book is also a visual record, replete with rare and priceless photographs, which provides not only a portrayal of events and people, and also offers an analysis of every era of Nepal's development.

Nepal's history is rooted in isolationism and exploitation and has been bounded in on every side by the actions of self-interested and autocratic rulers who have lacked an outward-looking political and economic vision.

The visit of the Rana prime ministers to the West and the deployment of Gurkha solderis during the two World Wars marked the opening of Nepal to the Western world. But it was not until the advent of democracy in the late 1950s that led to other major events, which heralded a more "open door" policy to tourism in Nepal.

"The basic premise of tourism in Nepal," the author states, "is delicately built upon the magnificent and famed Himalayas, brave and chivalrous Gurkhas, skilled and distinguished Sherpas, a rich and intriguing cultures and mysterious and magnificent heritage." But what is the present performance of tourism? What is its future? Nepal's Tourism: Uncensored Facts critically examines the myths and realities of this issue and offers an enlightened solution for the 21st century.

The author, who holds post-graduate degrees in both economics and sociology, has had an active interest and role in the development of tourism over the past twenty-five years. A prolific author and dedicated social worker, he at present holds managerial posts in Group 4 Securitas (Nepal), Cross Country Nepal Hotels, Nepal Hyro-Power and Energy Dev. Co., and Mahendra Nagar Medical College and Hospital.

Organisation and Finance of International Labour Migration in Nepal

by Simone Wyss

Labour migration to India, the Gulf, the Asian Tiger countries and many other parts of the world is an increasing phenomenon in Nepal, but has been only formally documented in more recent studies. However, the social, political and economic dynamic of migration is still not understood in detail.

Although migration has the potential for remittances and entrepreneurial activities, it raises many important questions: from the reduction of available village labour and the extra responsibilities especially imposed on women, to the ways of sending money earned abroad back to families, from the living conditions in alien environments, and, last but not least, the oscillation between two worlds - the different institutional rules and regulations of the migrants' "home society" and the "society of arrival".

Rawa Dolu: The Story of a Mountain Village

by Joanne Stephenson

High on a hill above the Likhu River in eastern Nepal sits the village Rawa Dolu, separated from the capital city, Kathmandu, by a one day bus trip followed by three days of walking.
Through personal sketches of several villagers, Rawa Dolu: The Story of a Mountain Village describes the lifestyle and environment of an isolated Nepali village. In recent years this village has gradually transformed itself from an almost hopeless community of people plodding through life, doing their best with the meagre resources available. The story relates how the community has developed into one with high spirits and a firm commitment to the village and the future of the children who live in it.

Tourism as Development: Case Studies from the Himalayas

by Pitamber Sharma

The increasing concern with sustainable development in recent years has brought the issue of the economic, and social and cultural development of tourist destination areas, along with concern for the environnment, to the centre stage of the tourism development debate. This orientation has added a critical dimension to the perception of tourism in the Himalaya, namely, that of tourism as a development intervention. For, from the perspective of the people who inhabit this diverse and beautiful region, a very large majority of whom are poor in terms of income and capability, tourism is fundamentally about development.

The case studies presented in this volume represent various types of tourism: trekking, mountaineering, pleasure and sightseeing, wilderness and culture, resort tourism and pilgrimage -- at different ecological belts in the Himalaya. But the studies are not only about tourism. Tourism provides the context for looking at the issues of management of the environment and common property resources, of regional development in a remote region, of urban management in two resort towns, and of maintaining the sanctity of a pilgrimage centre in a unique environment.

The book elucidates the essential inter-relationship of tourism development with various critical aspects of local development and presents the need to take an integrated and inter-sectoral approach to mountain tourism.
