    Women make essential contributions to agriculture by playing a large role in food crop production. They require land as source of rural livelihood and monetary strengthening through land right security. Women’s ownership of land and property can be potentially transformative, not only as a store of value, but also as a means of acquiring other assets and engaging in a range of markets. However, women have lower access to productive resources (land and capital) compared to their male counterparts.

    Zimbabwe

    The political dysfunction that had come to characterize an imploding Zimbabwean economy is beyond dispute.

It argues that land patronage has been used as a means for legitimating fledgling state rule while undermining the tenure security of the poor.
