The IGAD Regional Gender Assessment of the Land Sector Report
The IGAD land programme aims to address barriers to women’s land rights by building capacity and aware- ness among leaders and champions to: i) Safeguard and promote women’s rights of voice and participation in decision making; ii) Increase the participation of grassroots women in local and regional organisations through movement- building in partnership with CSOs and; iii) Provide support and guidance to Member States in developing and/or amending their internal governance instruments. Gender assessments have been carried out in the seven IGAD member states by county experts (e.g. Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan, Somalia and Uganda). This Regional Report is a synthesis of the seven- country reports highlighting the status of gender and land in the IGAD Region.
The regional report provides greater clarity on existing stereotypical attitudes and practices about land; considers the roles and responsibilities, norms and rules in access to resources and services as well as decision-making and power and control between girls, boys, women and men; barriers and opportunities faced by women and men in access, control and ownership of land and; participation and representation in formal and informal land administration and management bodies.
