Expertise

With over 40 years of combined experience, our team has partnered with women in over twenty countries to advance women’s rights to land and resources.

We are a group of lawyers whose work focuses on law and policy — drafting, revising and implementing. Our experience has taught us that legal and social change are required for women to have equal rights to land and resources, and we focus on the legal and sociological issues related to social inclusion and gender equality.

Our team works with policy makers, governments, and women’s organizations on:

  • Land tenure policy and reform
  • Land market development
  • Land titling and registration
  • Resettlement
  • Poverty reduction
  • Rural development
  • Pasture management
  • Land conflict resolution
