Update on Resource Equity
After nearly a decade of working together, Resource Equity has made the difficult decision to close and pursue other opportunities.
We are in the process of trying to secure new homes for the Women’s Land Rights Institute and LandWise legal database, so please stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, these resources will continue to be hosted here.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years!
Advancing women’s land and resource rights
Empowered women change the world
We know that land rights for women lay the foundation for a world that is equitable, secure and empowering for women everywhere. We work with our global partners to increase and improve women’s rights to land.
Who We Are
Creating lasting change for women through land and
We’re an international non-profit organization working to advance women’s rights to land and natural resources in economically poor countries.
We do this by bridging the gap between laws, research, and practical application. Why? Having rights to land and resources empowers women to live better lives. And when we support women, families and communities also benefit.
Let's work together
Partnering with organizations to create change
We have expertise and knowledge built over decades of global practice.
We support governments, donors, private sector companies, NGOs, local advocates and others to develop new legal, policy, and programmatic solutions that address the gap between law and practice for women.
