Study on Women and Property Rights: Project Best Practices


This study attempts to further the body of work on gender relations and land tenure and property rights (LTPR) by examining successful interventions that have improved and strengthened women’s access to and control over land. In this way, the study seeks to identify best practices and lessons learned with regard to integrating gender concerns and focus in relation to the five land issues identified in USAID’s LTPR framework, which are: conflict and/or instability that impact land rights, insecure tenure rights, landlessness and land redistribution, land markets and their influence on communal and individual ownership, and natural resources (pastures, wetlands, forests) management.
