Ethiopia Women’s Land Rights Agenda

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in 2020 commissioned the National Gender Assessment of the Land Sector in Ethiopia to inform its policies, programmes, and operational work for promoting women’s empowerment and land rights security in the region (IGAD, 2020). 2 The report was validated during a three-day workshop organised by IGAD and Ministry of Agriculture on 3 to 5 March 2021. It involved multi-stakeholders responsible/ working in the land sector; including the members of the National Women Land Right Task Force (NWLRTF)3 in Ethiopia.

IGAD initiated and facilitated the formulation of the national “Women’s Land Rights Agenda” in the three- day workshop tapping the experiences of the Task- force and other stakeholders. This report presents the process of formulating the agenda and discusses the priorities and strategies identified to advance women's land rights security in Ethiopia.

The report is organised into five sections. Section one provides brief introduction, background information on women and land rights security and the country context. It also describes the objective, methodology, and limitations of the report. Section two discusses the five priority agendas, which provide analysis of the problems, while section three presents the recommended strategies to overcome the problems. Section four transforms the strategies into action categorised into short, medium, and long-term plans. The last section provides the list of reference materials used in preparing this country plan on women’s land right security.
