National Gender Assessment of the Land Sector in Ethiopia
This national gender assessment of the land sector in Ethiopia has the explicit purpose of informing the policy, programming, and operational work of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). It seeks to support women's empowerment in improving women's land ownership in the region. This assessment contributes to the "Improving Land Governance in IGAD Region" project. It aims at facilitating the implementation of the AU Declaration on Land Issues and Challenges, following the Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa.
This enables access to land and security of land rights for all land users in the IGAD region, especially vulnerable groups such as pastoralists, women, and youth. The countries in the IGAD region have different laws governing land due to their colonial history, diversity of cultural and religious norms, and endowment with natural resources. They are also at various levels in undertaking land reforms. IGAD runs the project premised on the IGAD Land Governance business plan 2019 - 2023, which provides a road map and a guide to formulation and implementation of follow-up projects and programmes, building on the first phase of an SDC-funded land governance project 2014 -2019.
