Labour migration from Nepal
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
As numerous studies have demonstrated, women bear the
disproportionate burden of the costs of disasters, if their rights are not ensured and if gender, socio-cultural and political-economic inequalities within the context of gender relations and institutions are not addressed (Mehta, 2007). When disasters hit, more women than men die because of lack of information, mobility, decision-making, access to resources and training, gender-based cultural norms and barriers, and high rates of male out-migration.
This graphic shows gender proportion in labour migration from Nepal.
