At Resource Equity, we believe empowered women change the world. Our mission is to advance women's rights to land and resources, which are key to that empowerment.
Our team of gender and land tenure professionals has more than 60 years of combined experience. Since our founding in 2014, we’ve been putting that experience to work around the world advocating for legal, policy, and social change with the goal of advancing women’s land and resource rights, and serving as a global source for research, best practices, and policy making.
At the core of our approach is a commitment to collaborating with partners around the world to focus on women, land, and resources. We’re proud that our work with these partners has helped reduce poverty and improve women’s social, legal, and economic status. These improvements in women’s rights and status improve not just women’s lives, but the lives of their families and communities.
Our team has worked on women’s land and resource issues in Africa (Angola, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda); Asia and Pacific (China, India, Jordan, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, Vietnam); South America (Brazil and Peru); and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan). We have worked for the World Bank, European Investment Bank, MCC, USAID, GIZ, DFID, the FAO, Rights and Resources Initiative, Ford Foundation, Care International, World Resources Institute, and many others.
