    Ce manuel du praticien explique comment promouvoir une réforme des régimes forestiers communautaires qui soit proactive en faveur de l’égalité des sexes. Ce manuel s’adresse à celles et ceux qui tentent de relever ce défi dans les pays en développement. Il n’existe pas d’approche unique pour réformer les pratiques de tenure forestière afin de parvenir à l’égalité femmes-hommes et à l’autonomisation des femmes.

    Western Africa

    This is the report of a webinar held by Land Portal on 24th March 2021.


    In much of West Africa, women are considered breadwinners responsible to provide food for the family. However, women do not only own less land but also face manifold obstacles in accessing land through transfers, inheritance, or lease. The tenure security of this group has been threatened by large-scale land deals, state appropriation in the name of the public interest, and the often-discriminating practices of customary tenure systems.

    Africa

    For the past few decades, efforts to strengthen women’s land rights in many sub-Saharan African countries have primarily focused on a single approach: systematic registration through individual/joint certification or titling. While registration — individually or with a spouse — may support tenure security in specific contexts, the sheer complexity of land governance practices and tenure arrangements across the continent (both formal and customary) often render an emphasis on systematic titling inadequate.

    Ethiopia

    Land in Ethiopia is held by the state, who acts as a custodian for the Ethiopian people. Even though it is the state which controls land ownership, farmers and pastoralists are guaranteed a lifetime ‘holding’ right that provides rights to use the land, rent it out, donate, inherit and sharecrop it. Everything except sell and mortgage it. On paper and under existing formal laws, women have equal rights to men as far as use and control of and access to land is concerned.
