Sustainable Development and Economic Opportunity

Achieving food security is not only a question of whether adequate food is available, it is primarily about ensuring equal access. But in over half of all countries worldwide, laws or customs have a discriminatory effect on women and hinder their access to land. The rule of law can help make land rights for women more sustainable and contribute to the peaceful resolution of disputes.

IDLO published research on the nexus between land rights, gender equality, food security and the rule of law, and worked in Africa to determine the impact of tenure registration on land disputes and women’s land rights.
