Kick-off event: Strengthening Women’s Land Rights – Crucial for SDG’s

13 December 2018
15:30 - 17:00 CET
Hague, Netherlands


Kick-off event: meet female land rights champions, make your work more effective and join the festive launch of a photo exhibition

You are kindly invited to participate in an inspiring and informative event to discuss lessons learned from successful grassroots initiatives to improve land rights for women, supported by The Netherlands. What do these lessons mean for the gender ambitions in the policy note ‘Investing in Global Prospects’? How can we apply these lessons in our work on foreign trade and development cooperation?

Women and men’s equal rights to use, access and control land are crucial for the livelihoods, including income and health, of women, men and their families, as put forward in the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGT). During this event, impact stories will be shared by women who are involved in different initiatives in order to generate concrete ideas for follow-up which should result in action and results on the ground.
