The limited research on the benefits of women gaining secure rights to land and property suggest positive results: an increase in women’s participation in household decision-making; an increase in net household income; a reduction in domestic violence; an increased ability to prevent being infected by HIV/AIDS; and increased expenditures on food and education for children. Understanding the complexity surrounding women’s land rights is critical to ensuring that those rights are protected and improved. Because laws, customs, and norms can change from country to country, and even vary between regions and ethnic groups within countries, to secure women’s land and property rights women must be meaningfully included in the design and implementation of projects and policies.
