Empowered women change the world.

What We Believe

Resource Equity believes that empowered women change the world. Ensuring that women have secure rights to land and resources is key to that empowerment, and promotes lasting economic growth, more resilient communities, and healthier societies.

Yet while many see the importance of secure land rights, this realization has not yet translated into appreciable changes for women.

Harnessing rare expertise built over a combined 60 years of global practice and research, Resource Equity, along with our local partners, is ushering in a new era in women’s land rights.

Impact Fund

This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 for our Impact Fund to enable us to take advantage of opportunities to advance women's rights as they arise. Across the world, women’s rights to land and resources are key to increasing food security, reducing poverty, and mitigating conflict.

Help us reach our goal.
