pdf.png The Gendered Nature of Land and Property Rights in Post-Reform Rwanda HOT

This report is a summary of findings from an in-depth literature review and field research on the gendered nature of land rights in twenty sites in Rwanda (including sites located in the following districts: Rwamagana, Kirehe, Nyaruguru, Muhanga, Karongi, Rubavu, and Gasabo). It fills an important gap in evidence of women’s differential access to and control over land and other productive assets, the kinds of conflicts they experience over those resources, and the ways they attempt to resolve those conflict s. This information is intended to enable the Rwandan Government, INGOs, CSOs, donors and the private sector to develop and adopt policies, procedures and laws that protect women’s rights to property, minimize land-related conflicts, and reduce rural Rwandan’s dependence on scarce natural resources.
This research was undertaken by the Rwanda LAND Project, and was supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Land in the Owg11: Tenure Security or Assets?


The report of the 11th Session of the Open working Group (OWG) for the sustainable Development goals dated 2nd June 2014 reveals a shift in language away from tenure security to assets. This has grave implications to poverty eradication, economic growth, food security and gender equality.


The key GLII messages as agreed at the various expert meetings April 2013 Washington, November 2013 the Hague and March 2014 Washington are that any target on land should respond to:

 

  • Men and women
  • The continuum of land rights or intermediary rights
  • Recognize perception in the definition of its indicators


The table below presents the language as proposed by the OWG11 and gives the suggested language by GLII that would result in the realization of the SDG goals.
