Women’s Land Rights Agenda for South Sudan

The National Women’s Land Rights Agenda for South Sudan is a reflection of gender and land governance challenges and issues in South Sudan. Most distinctive among the challenges and issues concern the legal and normative, formal and informal practices that intersect land, salient are the traditional barriers that inhibit women from enjoying the rights accorded to them in the existing legal frameworks of South Sudan and regional and international treaties promoting the rights of women. Addressing the challenges and issues of women's land rights contributes to peace, livelihood security, economic growth, political and social transformation of the nation.

The IGAD led process of the gender analysis of the land sector in South Sudan surfaced gender perspectives of key land sector elements and institutional diversities and gaps encompassing land governance challenges, issues, and opportunities in South Sudan. The gender assessment helped the Ministry of Lands, Housing, and Urban Development to establish a benchmark and a process to systematically track progress in improving gender equality in the land sector of South Sudan.
