This report is based on the proceedings of the Technical Consultation on Gender, Property Rights and Livelihoods in the Era of AIDS, organized by FAO in November 2008. It takes stock of where FAO and its partners are in terms of addressing property rights insecurity and provides a proposed framework through which future action can take place. It focuses on the following dimensions: understanding property rights in the era of AIDS (including key research findings); linkages between gender, property rights and livelihoods; legislation, training of the judiciary and traditional leaders, and para-legal training programmes; advocacy, mobilization of grassroots groups/networks; and political dialogue. Drawing together experiences and expertise on these issues, and identifying research and programme gaps, this report concludes with some key recommendations for future work and priority areas of action.
