This topic brief highlights the important role that gender plays in this context of sustainable development, in particular the role of women in the Arab States and Africa.

     It is well recognized that secure land and property rights for all are essential to reducing poverty because they underpin economic development and social inclusion. Secure land tenure and property rights enable people in urban and rural areas to invest in improved homes and livelihoods. Although many countries have completely restructured their legal and regulatory framework related to land and they have tried to harmonize modern statutory law with customary ones, millions of people around the world still have insecure land tenure and property rights.

    Sierra Leone

    Sierra Leone is still recovering from a
    brutal civil war (1991-2002), fuelled in part by a valuable
    and easily extractable natural resource (diamonds). Sierra
    Leone now stands on the verge of an unprecedented period of
    economic growth, driven primarily by revenues from
    large-scale iron ore mining. Yet it continues to face many

    The United Nations declared 2014 the International Year of Family Farming. Although many forms of production were once family-based, agriculture is now one of the few that are still dominated by families.

Family farms are mostly small in scale, but they are highly diverse in other ways, and their pathways out of poverty will vary.
