The Women’s Land Rights in Southern Africa Project (WOLAR) is aimed at enhancing women’s access to, ownership of, control over land and other productive resources and services in order to meet their basic livelihood needs and become more economically independent and secure.

The project targets rural women farmers in selected districts in Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The project is being implemented to achieve several broad intended project results, namely: awareness raising of women’s land rights, so that women at local level will become aware, knowledgeable, and organized with respect to their land rights; mobilising political support at community level in respect to women’s land rights; women claiming and obtaining land rights; and improved access to support for sustainable farming, so that programmes with women farmers are supported, and their national network organisations are strengthened. Each of the WOLAR project countries has translated these result areas and developed specific indicators—to suit its strategic interests with regards to the prevailing situation of women’s land rights.
