Governing land for women and men (FAO)

A technical guide to support the achievement of responsible  gender-equitable governance of land tenure

The first Governance of Tenure Technical Guide was launched on 14 January 2013 at the Gender and Land Governance Conference, in Utrecht, Netherlands. This technical guide provides detailed material to support implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines by providing guidance in relation to the Guidelines’ principle of gender equality in tenure governance. The guide focuses on equity and on how land tenure can be governed in ways that address the different needs and priorities of women and men and particularly focuses on the mainstreaming of gender issues to achieve more gender-equitable participation in the processes and institutions that underlie all decision-making about land.
