The overall objective is to ensure women’s access to and
control over their land resources across Africa - supporting and enabling rural women’s voices. The action aims to effective independent and participatory monitoring by civil society of government progress on achieving targets related to the promotion of women’s land rights.
In order to contribute to this goal, the action has three specific objectives:
1) Monitor actions taken by governments in key countries and Regional Economic Communities (RECs), and hold them accountable to implement relevant AU Women's Land Rights (WLR) instruments;
2) Empower rural women’s organizations to analyse, document and disseminate evidence on pronounced cases of missing WLR and action against the discriminatory land tenure systems and threats originating from large-scale land-based investments (LSLBIs);
3) Promote recognition of Pan-African civil society for its leadership, knowledge and effective advocacy capacity on women’s land rights.
