The Kumal people live in a small village in the mid hills of Nepal. As a result of a government project to irrigate another village upstream, their source of water for irrigating their crops was cut off, and due to their position in the caste system and low education levels they were unable to successfully advocate for their needs to be met.

This case study describes how Tearfund partner UMN worked with the Kumal people to help them decide a response, generate media coverage, challenge national law and mediate an agreement, and highlights the expected impacts for the Kumal people.
