The purpose of this report was to evaluate the gender  inequality that currently exists in land ownership in Zambia. Zambia currently has two land tenure systems, both of which are relic of the colonial era. In both of these systems, land ownership is along patriarchal lines, with women having little land security. Research has shown that the attainment of  women's land rights can and could possibly contribute to the social and economic development of a country. This report highlights how Medici Land Governance is helping make that possible through it's Sytematic Land Titling programme in accordance to The National Land Titling Programme Launces by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in 2014 under Honorable Jean Kapata (former Minister).
