The team is currently working on this phase of the project.
We’re collaborating with regional and national stakeholders to contextualize women’s land rights in the respective regions, profile key stakeholders in the land ecosystem, explore strategic opportunities for collaboration, and identify specific countries that merit a more in-depth analysis.
This phase of the project involves deep coordination and collaboration with multiple entities who represent governmental interests (such as the line ministries,) industry interests (like farmers associations,) and civil interests (including members of NGOs and academics who specialize in land rights,) in addition to entities that spearhead implementation of the regional agenda on land (e.g., the AUC-UNECA-AfDB African Land Policy Centre).
As part of this phase, we’ll select 15 countries – ten from Sub-Saharan Africa and five from Middle East/North Africa – on which we’ll report key issues at the country level.
We’ll also attempt to scan for promising interventions, which could be vetted as part of the in-depth case studies in Phase Two.
