Involucran territorios sociales y culturales sensibles y desafían estructuras de poder profundamente enraizadas.

En dépit des avancées dans le domaine des droits des femmes, ceux qui concernent la terre et la sécurité du régime foncier ne sont pas également répartis entre les deux sexes dans bien des régions du monde. Cela va à l’encontre des droits humains reconnus par les conventions internationales, tout en ayant des effets néfastes sur les ménages et sur l’économie. Lorsqu’elles touchent à la terre, les questions d’égalité des sexes deviennent plus complexes.

    This publication on Secure Land Rights for All demonstrates how secure land rights are particularly important in helping to reverse three types of phenomena: gender discrimination; social exclusion of vulnerable groups; and wider social and economic inequalities linked to inequitable and insecure rights to land. It argues that policymakers should adopt and implement the continuum of land rights because, no single form of tenure can meet the different needs of all social groups.
