In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8 March, CIFOR has created a special feature spotlighting the issue of women and land rights. Securing tenure can be hard and complicated in many places around the world, but it becomes even more difficult when gender dynamics come into play. CIFOR’s collection of materials on women and land rights spans Asia, Latin America and Africa and covers decision-making, traditional gender roles, forest-based enterprises and much more.

Indigenous women are affected not only by the tenure security of their collective land but also by their status as women; hence, both national law and community norms are of paramount importance.
