    Access to land is highly dependent on social status (ethnicity, social class) and family status (position in the household) of individuals. Women's access to land varies according to eco-geographical zones and as well, is dependent on their particular position and rank in the family household. Despite a formal recognition of the right of women to land in the Senegalese national Strategy for Gender Equality and Equity (SNEEG), social or cultural claims are always made to justify their limited access to resources.

With agriculture as the engine of Myanmar’s economy, employing more than two thirds of the population and accounting for one third of GDP, various studies in Myanmar provide contrasting figures on landlessness and indicate that the problem stems from a lack of clarity in the concept of landlessness.

Cette analyse peut alimenter la définition d’une politique de l’habitat destinée à réguler le marché foncier et immobilier et favoriser l’accès à la ville pour les populations pauvres.
