In partnership with the Center for Land Governance (NRMC) and the WGWLO (The Working Group on Women and Land Ownership), the Land Portal will hold an online discussion on Women’s Land Rights in India in the Context of the SDGs from 30th October – 10th November 2017 (over a period of 2 weeks), and would like to invite you to contribute to the discussion.
The discussion will be facilitated by Pranab Choudhury from NRMC and Sejal Dave from WGWLO are the dialogue facilitators.
As you may know, governments are meeting in Bahrain on the 11th of November to decide on the fate of many of the SDG indicators, including those relating to land and gender, and we hope this discussion will serve as a push to gain recognition of the importance of tracking gender in the context of the SDGs.
Ideally, we need people to commit to contributing a post under each question/theme to help frame the issues and get the discussion going. We request you to choose the question (s) that you may like to respond to based on your interests and experiences.
Your contribution can be quite short (around 300-500 words) and doesn’t have to be polished (bullet points are fine). You can draw on text from existing works, reports or presentations done on this topic.
If you do not already have an account on the Land Portal, I can create a Land Portal account for you and post your contribution on your behalf.
If there is anything I can do to assist you to facilitate your participation for the cause of women’s land rights in the context of SDGs, please let me know.
