We are a diverse group, women and men, from all regions of the world who came together in this EGM convened by Global Land Indicators Initiative, UN Habitat, Oxfam, Landesa, Huairou Commission and UN Women. We are from governments including national statistical organizations and land agencies, multi-lateral agencies, civil society organizations, including women’s organizations and groups that met on July 8 – 9, 2017 to discuss women’s land rights in the context of the SDGs. We note with high importance the much needed transformation required at local and national levels to create gender equitable land access and secure rights, as well as women’s involvement in decision making about their land and related resources as a basis for more equitable societies and to eradicate poverty.

About Landesa

Landesa partners with governments and local organizations to ensure that the world’s poorest families have secure rights over the land they till.
