This report constitutes one of four countrywide assessments produced under the International Institute for Environment and Development’s (IIED) ‘Gender, land and accountability in the context of agricultural and other natural resource investments’ initiative. The goal of the initiative is to strengthen rural women’s livelihood opportunities by empowering them in relation to community land stewardship and increasing their ability to hold agricultural investors in East and West Africa to account. The main aim of this report is to provide a backdrop of relevant policies and practice. The report draws on a literature review conducted by the Tanzania Women Lawyers Association (TAWLA) and IIED, as well as on primary field research conducted by TAWLA in 2015.
