It is based on lessons learned from various research findings, Kenya Land Alliance experience and discussions with colleagues with whom we work with in various capacities on land policy and law reforms in Kenya and others parts of Africa.

    The women Land Rights Project is a project of Kenya Land Alliance that aims at actualisation Women land and property rights, as provided in the Constitution of Kenya, 2013 and as a means towards poverty alleviation. This considering the fact that, in Kenya where the foundation of most communities is Agriculture and livestock production, women contribute up to 80% of workforce yet they only hold 1% of registered land in their names and around 5-6% of registered titles are held in joint names (Kenya Land Alliance, 2013).

    In pastoral societies women face many challenges. Some describe these as a ‘double burden’ –
    that is, as pastoralists and as women. However, pastoral women may obtain a significant degree
    of protection from customary law even if customary institutions are male-dominated. In periods
    of change (economic, social, political), this protection may be lost, and without protection from
    statutory laws, women are in danger of “falling between two stools” (Adoko and Levine 2009). A

    Este artigo junta-se aos esforços de muitos outros africanos, entendendo-se por pobreza não só os níveis de rendimento por dia por pessoa, mas também a pobreza como ausência de poder nas relações intra-familiares, entre estas e os demais actores e entre a sociedade no seu todo e os recursos naturais de que se dispõe no Continente Africano.

    A Estratégia de Segurança Alimentar e Nutricional (ESAN II) resulta da evolução da
    ESAN I aprovada pelo Governo de Moçambique em 1998, através da Resolução Interna
    16/98. A ESAN I foi elaborada na sequência da Cimeira Mundial de Alimentação
    (CMA), realizada em Roma em 1996, quando os diversos países se comprometeram a
    reduzir a fome para metade até 2015. Este objectivo coincide com o Objectivo número
    um do Desenvolvimento do Milénio (ODM), aprovado na Cimeira do Milénio, em 2000.

This briefing highlights some of the WRLFs’ achievements and strategies; asks how these forums, which appear to be a part of an emerging grassroots social movement for land rights, can be further supported; and explores whether such forums could be replicated elsewhere in the region
