Trafficking of women and girls in Nepal
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Some estimates from Maiti Nepal suggest that trafficking from Nepal may have increased from an estimated 3-5,000 per year during the pre-war times (1990) to possibly 12-20,000 per year in 2010. This includes internal and external trafficking. Internal trafficking increased extensively during
and after the ten years of armed conflict in Nepal, though great uncertainty exists about such estimates.
