Animation on Women, Land and Peace Advocacy | Land Portal

Women’s rights to housing, land and property are central to peace!

Securing housing, land and property rights enables women to feel safe in their communities and empowers them to actively participate in decision-making, peace negotiations, peacebuilding and peacekeeping.

On International Women’s Day, UN-Habitat and the Global Land Tool Network are pleased to release the new advocacy animation capturing the Key Messages on Sustaining Peace through Women’s Empowerment and Increased Access to Land and Property Rights in Fragile and Conflict-affected Contexts developed in collaboration with the HLP Area of Responsibility of the Global Protection Cluster and with the support of Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

This advocacy video provides a quick reference on how to empower women and protect their housing, land and property rights in fragile and crisis affected contexts, and why this is an essential element to sustain peace and stability.
