Nepalese Migrations: Introduction

Abstract : Permanent migrations to the Tarai and to urban areas have constantly been on the rise since the 1970s so that the once mountainous Nepalese population is today mostly made up of plain-dwellers. In 2009, every day 700 to 800 Nepalese workers headed for foreign countries, other than India. Not a single day goes by without news of some Nepalese worker stranded in some faraway place. Even though it is impossible to find out exactly how many Nepalese work abroad, there are an estimated 4 to 6.5 million people working permanently or temporarily outside their country.
