Securing women’s access to land: Linking research and action

An overview of action-research projects in Eastern Africa

The issue of women’s land access occupies centre stage, once again, as a result of increasing poverty and the 2007 global food crisis. Women need secure land access in order to produce food for their families, improve their welfare and participate in economic activities. Women’s secure access to land improves the chances that the countries involved will meet millennium development goals. In spite of various efforts by states and international institutions, women continue to have insecure land tenure.

Commercial Biofuel Land Deals & Environment and Social Impact Assessments in Africa

Three case studies in Mozambique and Sierra Leone

The rapid increase in attempts by foreign investors to acquire large tracts of land in Africa for biofuel developments has generated substantial concern about their potential negative impact on the communities living in the targeted areas. This includes concerns about the impact on local residents’ livelihoods, their access to land, natural resources and labour, and their food security.
