The stakes are high: while securing women’s land rights fosters critical gains, from enhanced social status, to greater food security for families, neglecting to do so could have significant negative effects on the wellbeing of women, children and their greater communities. Rural and indigenous women’s security of tenure, especially for smallholder farmers, must inform ongoing climate change knowledge-generation, discussions, and interventions.
