Summary Flier_ The IGAD Regional Women's Land Rights Agenda
Land is a crucial resource for the people living in the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region. However, land governance continues to be characterized by many concerns including insecure land and land-based resource rights; unequal distribution of land; and the duality of property regimes and legal pluralism. The last concern is especially complicated; archaic colonial/statutory laws are sometimes still enforced, and customary and religious practices frequently are applied simultaneously and inter-changeably with formal law. Under all of these systems, women’s rights to own and use land are precarious in the region thus still a challenge.
