We all know that land is essential to securing shelter, for agriculture for food security, for mobilising investments and for sustainable management of resources. It only makes sense to include women in decision-making in land policy, and creating programmes that give women the necessary tools to secure land ownership, we address the challenges facing most African countries.
To help us unpack this, we have Tamzin Hudson who is currently the Advocacy Senior Specialist at Habitat for Humanity International. As well as Eileen Wakesho from Kenya, who is the Women Land Rights Advisor from Oxfam International. Also joining on the line us is Mathabo Makuta, She is a National Director for Habitat for Humanity in Lesotho.
