Offer: Publication: International Land Coalition (ILC): Securing Women's Access to Land
Over the last three years, the International Land Coalition (ILC) has carried out a project entitled "Securing Women's Access to Land: Linking Research and Action" in Eastern and Southern Africa with support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The project has generated reports for each action-oriented research project, synthesis reports and policy briefs, the first set of which are now available for download. More research reports and policy briefs will be uploaded in the coming weeks.
The project aimed at learning from grassroots women and promoting a transformative agenda for women's land rights and at its core, more than 20 partners in 7 countries undertook action-oriented research with the support of two partner institutions, the Makerere Institute for Social Research (MISR) in Uganda and the Institute of Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) in South Africa.
Crucial to this project was the idea that research processes and outputs are not ends in themselves, but used for advocacy, including locally with traditional authorities and nationally with policy-makers - and this advocacy is continuing beyond this project.
