La tierra es un recurso finito, y el acceso a ella es esencial para la subsistencia de las personas y las comunidades. Para garantizar que el acceso a la tierra sea seguro y equitativo para todos, las Naciones Unidas han establecido el Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) 1.4.2, que mide la seguridad de la tenencia de la tierra de las personas, y el ODS 5.a.1, que mide la seguridad de la tenencia de la tierra agrícola desde una perspectiva de género.

La terre est une ressource limitée, et son accès est essentiel pour les moyens de subsistance des individus et des communautés. Pour que l'accès à la terre soit sûr et équitable pour tous, les Nations unies ont fixé l'objectif de développement durable (ODD) 1.4.2, qui mesure la sécurité tenure foncière des individus, et l'ODD 5.a.1, qui mesure la sécurité tenure sur les terres agricoles dans une perspective de genre.

Unresolved disputes and disorder, can be addressed through the judicial system. However, the process is expensive, slow, unscalable, and does not focus on reconciling individuals, families and communities. Through the lens of beneficiaries, this article reveals the importance of alternative dispute resolution in land reforms, particularly adjudication committees.

Just like many African countries, a majority of Zambian tribes follow a matrilineal system, that is, an affinity system in which descent is derived through maternal instead of paternal lines which essentially means children are recognised by the names or family of their mothers. This does not only affect decent but also involves the inheritance of titles and property including land through the female line. One might ask why women have less access and control of land in Zambia when land and property is inherited through maternal lines.

In many countries men control who gets to use, own, and make decisions about land.


“We used to stay in a corner, quiet. If someone came to take our land or exploit our forests, we did not have the courage to try to stop them.” These words from a woman in Mecoburi, Mozambique reflect how women across the world often feel powerless to defend their rights to land and natural resources. For rural communities, land means everything, from the ability to produce crops for food and income to leveraging financial assets.
