The Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights has created four new practice guides, which are practical resources for development practitioners, researchers, lawyers, advocates, and scholars to assess the situation for women’s land rights in three countries: Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. They address both the formal legal structure and the customary framework that impact women’s secure access to land. A fourth guide, International Agreements and How to Build a Legal Case for Women’s Land Rights, provides insights and guidance on using international conventions (e.g. CEDAW) and regional agreements (e.g. The Banjul Charter) to build a case for women’s land rights at the national level.
Landesa has also produced a new infographic, the first to document the wide range of benefits that flow from women’s land tenure security. The infographic makes clear that women’s secure tenure can help us reach a number of our most critical sustainable development goals – from improved nutrition, education, and resiliency, to reduced domestic violence. | Full size view of the infographic
