Gendering Land Tools Roundtable
Global Land Tool Network
Over the past decade, women’s access to land and property and their security of tenure have actually declined in most parts of the world in the last decade. To achieve the Millennium Development Goals, gender responsive and effective land tools which are lacking need to be developed. Hence, the Gender Land Tool Network initiative to develop land tools which are propoor, innovative, affordable, scalable and gendered. The roundtable will bring together leading grassroots women, land professionals, policy makers, researchers, lawyers, analysts and experts through a women-led process to develop strategies towards systematically genderising land tools.
