Community Self Reliance Centre (CSRC) established in March 1993 in Sindhupalchowk District is a social organization that has campaigned more than a quarter of a century for comprehensive agrarian reform and the land rights of working farmers and tillers. Through this time, CSRC has worked to organize and raise consciousness amongst those deprived of land rights, build public opinion in favour of progressive land reform, and conduct action research related to land and agrarian issues.
Today, it is regarded as a national resource organization concerned with land rights. CSRC has established a presence across Nepal’s mountains, hills, and plains, in more than two-thirds of the nation’s districts and has currently maintained working relations with communities and local governments in all of these places. CSRC is committed to the belief that social inclusion and participatory democracy must be strengthened at the roots of society.
Now and into the future, CSRC’s activities, plans, and campaigns will be driven by the goals of a pro-people system of land management, and a sustainable, organic, and ecofriendly agrarian practice.
