The session will take place in the frame of EU Dev Days on June 5, 2018, from 14:00 to 15:15 in Brussels, Belgium.
The session will connect research and action to discuss evidence of challenges and opportunities to secure women’s land rights within indigenous and local communities that enjoy collective rights to natural resources. One of the highlights of the event will be the presentation of the Land Rights Now campaign.
There is a solid evidence that community land rights are relevant for women. Indigenous women are the forefront of grassroots movements for land rights, because of their strong and deep connection with their land and profound knowledge of nature. The session will also discuss how research can improve influencing and campaigning.
