Women’s Land Rights in Northern Uganda

Oxfam released a new report examining the security of women’s land and property rights across northern Uganda. Independent consultants were engaged to implement a relatively large qualitative and quantitative analysis of land tenure in the region. While several key findings related to ownership and access contradict many widely held perceptions associated with women and land, the report presents an objective insight into women’s land tenure and provides a sound basis for meaningful interventions aimed at improving the gender equitably of land tenure in northern Uganda.
