CONNECT’s interns, Milipa and Niva, joined a training session on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Nepal at DFID Nepal’s offices this week. The training, arranged by the Risk Management Office (RMO), was delivered by Dr Mukta S. Lama, Tribhuvan University. Dr. Lama, an indigenous rights activist and Lecturer on Sociology & Anthropology at Tribhuvan University, Nepal. Dr Lama completed his doctoral studies in anthropology from Cornell University. His Phd was on 'Himalayan Indigeneity: Histories, Memory and Identity among Tamang in Nepal'. Dr. Lama's training and the Checklist for Indigenous Audit of Development Projects shared by DFID-GIZ RMO have proved great learning for CONNECT as we seek to more intentionally respond to the Leave No One Behind Agenda.
