Her Land. Her Rights: Advancing gender equality to restore land and build resilience
This policy brief highlights the critical role of gender-responsive approaches to land tenure that empower women and accelerate the implementation of land restoration commitments that build community resilience. It examines how greater tenure security for women and girls can lead to a more equitable and sustainable land management. The brief builds upon the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) 2018–2030 Strategic Framework and its Gender Action Plan adopted in 2017. It is closely aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those on poverty reduction, gender equality, and protecting life on land.
