Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the Nepal's approach to environmental protection, inputs into planning decisions and their effectiveness. It attempts to analyse the role accorded to the public in the planning process by current environmental laws and practices in Nepal, including the right of the public to resort to judicial means to protect the environment. The chapter aims to demonstrate how environmental considerations in general and access to environmental justice suffer a set-back when a country goes through a political turmoil due to mismanagement and unequal distribution of the natural resources of the country and the ensuing political instability and absence of a functioning democracy. It seeks to draw lessons from Nepal's experience over the past 15 or so years about the relationship between environmental issues and broader issues of good governance.

Keywords: environmental justice; natural resources; Nepal's approach; political instability
