The VGGTs provide a paramount opportunity for reversing gender inequalities in agriculture and for promoting more gender-equitable governance of land tenure. To assist countries in the implementation of the Gender Equality principle of the VGGT, FAO, with the support of the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Government of Germany, has designed a capacity development programme entitled “Governing land for women and men”, aimed to enhance participants’ knowledge and competencies so as to enable them to contribute to gender-equitable and socially inclusive governance of land tenure when they carry out their daily work. The capacity development programme has two components: a self-paced e-learning course and a blended learning programme. Both are designed for a multi-stakeholder audience, including policy-makers, administrators, civil society organizations, producers’ organizations, academia, and private enterprises working in the land sector. In 2015, the gender-learning programme was successfully implemented in Mongolia and South Africa.
