Landportal - How can women's land rights be secured?
There is a lot of awareness on the discrimination women face in terms of their land rights and growing recognition that women’s land rights is a priority topic in food security, rural development, and women’s empowerment. ILC, FAO and IFAD, will organise a side-event entitled “How can women’s land rights be secured?” at the 56th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) to identify and learn from policies, projects and processes through which women’s land rights have been secured.
This discussion wants to gather inputs to enrich our debate in New York and raise the profile of women’s land rights issues in the CSW more generally. We would like to request your contribution on:
successful examples of women claiming their rights;
examples of policies and tools that promote women’s land rights;
the role of women’s organisations;
the wider policy context.
We are looking forward to a stimulating debate, and hope that you will share your experience and views, as well as many concrete examples of rural women claiming their land rights to inform and motivate all of us!
