    In October 2016, women farmers from 22 countries across Africa climbed the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro to claim women’s rights for access to and control over land and natural resources. This event coincided with the launch of a campaign of the African Land Policy Centre (ALPC) to reach the target of having 30 percent of all registered land in the name of women by 2025 and to embed women’s land rights into the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    This report uses household-level data from 33, mostly developing, countries to analyse perceptions of tenure insecurity among women. We test two hypotheses: (1) that women feel more insecure than men; and (2) that increasing statutory protections for women, for instance by issuing joint named titles or making inheritance law more gender equal, increases de facto tenure security.

    Policy Papers & Briefs
    March, 2018
    Mozambique, Tanzania

    Tanzania and Mozambique — countries of vast mountain ranges and open stretches of plateaus — now face a growing land problem. As soil degradation, climate change and population growth place enormous strains on the natural resources that sustain millions of people, multinational companies are also gunning for large swaths of land across both countries. Caught between these pressures, many poor, rural communities get displaced or decide to sell their collectively held land.

    Hoje, no quadro dos projectos de exploração dos recursos minerais e grandes projectos de construção de infra estruturas, ocorrem, ou há potencialidade de ocorrência, conflitos que opõem particulares entre si (titular de um direito sobre a terra e um investidor) ou particular e a Administração Pública.
    Por isso, considera-se que seria importante discutir os mecanismos de extinção de direitos sobre a terra e os meios de defesa do direito de uso e aproveitamento da terra (DUAT) como forma de procurar demonstrar a relação entre a Lei e a prática.

    O governo de Moçambique regulou o reassentamento involuntário, causado por investimentos económicos, através de uma lei que foi aprovada em 2012. A lei inclui boas práticas globais sobre a política de reassentamento involuntário como a compensação por perdas tangíveis e intangíveis e redes sociais dilaceradas; a preparação de um Plano de Acção para o reassentamento, que orienta o projecto de reassentamento; entre outros. Este relatório apresenta os resultados de um estudo sobre a medida na qual a igualdade de género e as questões de género são integradas na lei de 2012.
