    In Asia, land issues affect women in ways that call for serious deliberation and action. Suffice it to say, the legitimate concerns of females transcend generations and geographical borders. Attaining a stable livelihood, meeting basic resource needs and having adequate housing are just some of the issues that affect women.

The poor are swelling in numbers and the condition of poor rural women lies on the fringes of the global economic agenda.
