General

The overarching objective of the project is to contribute to securing women’s land rights and livelihoods by changes in land tenure policies and practices. Interventions will be carried out in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia where women’s land rights remain insecure and poverty rates are high. The envisaged outcome is that rural women, policy makers and civil society organizations across the four countries have the capacity, evidence and platforms needed to promote policy formulation and implementation based on local practices and livelihoods realities as opposed to normative perceptions about the tenure system.
