IFAD project network
The three-year initiative (2021-2024) will conduct gender analyses, pilot context-appropriate GTAs to advance the recognition and protection of women’s land rights in different IFAD projects, and scale up the GTA agenda. The initiative team will work collaboratively with IFAD project personnel in each country to share, add value and learn from ongoing efforts. Appropriate and relevant approaches will be identified for scaling women’s land rights initiatives.
Each IFAD project is unique, entailing different phases and timelines of project implementation, approaches to addressing gender, and issues concerning rights to land and resources. While few of these projects explicitly focus on land and resource rights or gender equality, these issues underpin project implementation with multiple entry points for intervention. The initiative will work across a diversity of projects and contexts to harvest lessons and promote cross-learning. The lessons will be shared with a wider pool of approximately 30 IFAD supported projects and beyond.
