Improving women’s access to land in Eastern DRC: Challenges and emerging opportunitiesAccess to land and natural resources is essential to social and economic development, providing housing, food and livelihood security. In eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, rural and indigenous populations exist in tenuous tenure security situations, and the reasons for conflicts over land are many and varied, ranging from natural resource exploitation to ethnic conflict to state weakness. Over two decades of armed conflict has caused massive displacement, severely impacting women and children many of whom are widows and orphans. However, long before these stressors, customary land practices had systematically discriminated against women, denying them control and security in the land that they work for their husbands and fathers.

This publication explores the challenges faced by women in their struggle to gain access and control to land despite government efforts.

The global Land Indicators Initiative is a collaborative and inclusive process for the development of the Global Land Indicators started by the Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC), UN-Habitat and the World Bank (WB), facilitated by GLTN. This initiative has now grown to include over 30 institutions around the world ranging from UN Agencies, Inter-governmental Organizations, International Nongovernmental Organizations, Farmer Organizations and the Academia.


In 2012, the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) took the initiative to organize an Expert Group Meeting for the development of annually reported global land indicators. The EGM met in April 2013, November 2013 and March 2014. The EGM participants are developing a list of 8-10 land indicators that will complement the Post-2015 development agenda as well as contribute to monitoring the UNFAO Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance on Tenure of Land, Forests and Fisheries and the African Union Land Policy Initiative/Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa.

pdf.png Ejido land tenure and registration system: Mexico case study - Synthesis report (Eng - 2015) HOT

(1 vote)

Ejido Land tenureThis report summarizes a case study of the Mexican ejido community tenure system. Mexico was selected for this case study because of the rich history and extensive scale of the country’s community land tenure and registration systems. This community system covers 52% of the area of Mexico, roughly equivalent to the size of Egypt, and comprises over 30 000 communities. The ejido system emanated from the Mexican revolution (1910-1917) and represents a case where the customary system of land has been largely integrated into the statutory system. The case study is particularly relevant to countries which are trying to accommodate customary land systems within a formal land registration system.
