2021 - The Year that WOLTS! | Land Portal

After adapting to challenges of COVID-19, 2021 turned into a very busy and exciting year for the global WOLTS team. This year has been the culmination of five years of field activities in Mongolia and Tanzania, with a strong focus on disseminating what we have learned.

Our key findings can be found in ‘Women and Community Land Rights: Investing in Local Champions’ which was launched in June via a webinar in collaboration with the Land Portal, the International Land Coalition, and our WOLTS partners HakiMadini, in Tanzania, and People Centered Conservation (PCC), in Mongolia. A new WOLTS blog followed in July - ‘To secure equal rights to land, bring men and women together’. If you missed the webinar you can still watch the recording here and read the Webinar ReportMongolian, Kiswahili and French report translations are also available. 

Earlier in 2021, the WOLTS team were delighted to share new 'gender guidelines’ developed in collaboration with the Mongolian government Agency for Land Administration and Management, Geodesy and Cartography (ALAMGAC). The guidelines have been distributed in all 330 districts of Mongolia – see our March blog which describes the collaborative process, and its broader significance. Our PCC team members have just finished facilitating more than thirty online learning workshops with hundreds of district Land Officers from across Mongolia to introduce the guidelines. These workshops were designed to engage key land administration stakeholders and develop their understanding of how to implement gender-sensitive participatory local land planning.  

We wish you all the very best for the holiday season and the coming year.
