    A inovação agrícola é essencial para a satisfação das crescentes necessidades alimentares num clima em mudança. Uma das possíveis vias para o aumento da produção é o investimento nas terras cultivadas por mulheres. Embora a intensifi-cação da agricultura seja a abordagem padrão para o aumento da produção, esforços recentes procuram dar ênfase à gestão sustentável das terras (GST). O modo tradicional de difusão de tecnologias é efetuado através do fornecimento de serviços de extensão agrária, que habitualmente servem primordialmente os agricultores do sexo masculino.

    Mozambique, Tanzania

    Tanzania and Mozambique — countries of vast mountain ranges and open stretches of plateaus — now face a growing land problem. As soil degradation, climate change and population growth place enormous strains on the natural resources that sustain millions of people, multinational companies are also gunning for large swaths of land across both countries. Caught between these pressures, many poor, rural communities get displaced or decide to sell their collectively held land.

    Dominant arguments about women’s land access stress the vulnerability of single women’s land rights in customary tenure areas. The vulnerability is based on long-held assumptions about customary tenure land governance, land use and gender relations. The paper seeks to contribute to the debate on customary tenure area land access, landlessness and understanding customary tenure evolution. Although single women have increasingly insecure tenure on customary tenure lands, in those systems spaces exist for single women to negotiate access to land.
