In this webinar we examined the most effective strategies to combat diminishing women’s land rights within communities.
Women currently own less than 20% of the world’s land, despite being half of the world’s population. In more than half of all countries, women lack the basic right of land ownership and do not receive equal inheritance rights. Customary rules that functioned in the past to ensure that women’s and children’s land rights were secure have in recent years been modified and manipulated to legitimize land dispossession from women and children in the context of increasing land scarcity.
