glii studyThe Feasibility Study is designed to provide a business case with respect to the feasibility of data collection for global land indicators. It gives a concrete analysis of the possibility of having land indicators in the post-2015 framework that are relevant, disaggregated by gender and include outcome indicators going beyond the legal framework. This report demonstrates that it is feasible to collect the data required using available methodologies and data sources, and that countries are able to produce these data regularly and at a reasonable cost.

pdf.png Land Access and Youth Livelihood Opportunities in Southern Ethiopia: Summary Report (Eng - 2014) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

This study aims to examine current land access and youth livelihood opportunities in Southern Ethiopia. We used survey data from the relatively land abundant districts of Oromia Region and from the land scarce districts of Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' (SNNP) Region. Although access to agricultural land is a constitutional right for rural residents of Ethiopia, we found that youth in the rural south have limited potential to obtain agricultural land that can be a basis for viable livelihood. The law prohibits the purchase and sale of land in Ethiopia. We found that land access through allocation from authorities is virtually nonexistent while land that can be obtained from parents through inheritance or gift is too small to establish a meaningful livelihood. The land rental market has restrictions, including on the number of years land can be rented out.

pdf.png Include "Secure Rights to Land for Women and Men" in the Post-2015 Development Agenda (Eng - 2014) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

We urge those who are shaping and determining the post-2015 development agenda to include targets on secure rights to land for women and men as an effective and cross-cutting foundation that can simultaneously address several of the proposed goals: eradicating poverty, improving food security, empowering women, reducing gender inequalities and building more inclusive cities.

 

The importance of secure rights to land for women and men is backed by research, has been recognized by stakeholders across different sectors, including government, civil society, technical groups, and businesses, and is reflected on key post-2015 documents such as the High-Level Panel Post-2015 Report, all the recent documents of the Open Working Group (including its June 2 proposal), and the indicators proposed by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
