Community Listeners' Group finds solution to secure women’s access to land

Innovative approaches can help secure women’s access to land in areas where land is traditionally controlled by men. FAO-Dimitra uses radio and community listener’s groups to facilitate communication about women’s access land in traditional communities. In the Banizoumbou village in Niger the dialogues around land through radio and in the listeners’ groups influenced social dynamics and helped women secure a 99-year lease of agricultural land.
