Webinar: Women and Land Rights

Deadline: 
31/01/2018

Join Namati on February 14th to examine 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.

Rachel Night from Namati, Caitlin Pierce from Traverse Research and Development Associates and Judy Adoko from Land and Equity Movement of Uganda will discuss the role that women can take in resolving land disputes from specific land grabbing cases in Myanmar and Uganda.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from the authors, ask questions, and join the fights for women’s land rights. If you cannot attend at this time, make sure to register and Namati will send you a video recording after it’s finished.
