Resource Equity is a women-run and women-centered nonprofit organization that focuses exclusively on legal issues specific to gender equity in land and natural resources around the world.

 

Women-Focused, Community-Minded

When women have equitable rights to land and natural resources, they transform their entire communities for the better. With over forty years of collective experience, we engage in comprehensive field research, legal and evidence reviews, constituent interviews, and qualitative analysis that ensures the experiences, perspectives, and needs of women are always centered.

 

Expert Advocacy and Guidance

Through our collaborative relationships with international NGOs, national governments, and in-country specialists, we identify, develop, and recommend social and policy changes that result in the real-world, meaningful advancement of women’s rights. We also run LandWise, a repository of laws which govern rights to land and property for women.

 

Women’s Land Rights Institute

Through our innovative, cross-cultural online courses, we train practitioners around the globe in effective techniques, approaches, and best practices in women’s land and natural resource rights. As many of our students are often one of the few practitioners in their country, the Institute is building a deep network of in-country experts who collaborate with each other across continents.

 

Global Reach

We have worked on women’s land and resource issues worldwide, including in Africa (Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Morocco, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda); Asia (China, India, Vietnam); South America (Peru); and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan). We have worked for the World Bank, MCC, USAID, GIZ, DFID, the FAO, Ford Foundation, Care International, and many others.

Webinar Report: The Role of Land Certification in Securing Women's Land Rights on Collective Lands

Evidence shows that women can benefit from having individualised land rights formalized in their names. However, similar evidence is not available for formalization of land rights that are based on collective tenure. Studies have estimated that as much as 65 percent of the world’s land is held under customary, collective-tenure systems. Improving tenure security for land held collectively has been shown to improve resource management and to support self-determination of indigenous groups.
