City: Washington, DC
On May 22-24, 2018, RRI is hosting a Strategy Meeting on Gender Justice in Community Land and Forests in Washington, DC, to develop a 5-year Gender Justice Strategy for the coalition, and to explore the establishment of a Global Partnership/Initiative to advance indigenous and rural women’s rights to community lands. The meeting’s objectives align with one of RRI’s strategic objectives in the third Strategic Plan (SPIII) for 2018-2022, to “scale up global efforts to secure rural women’s property rights, voice, and leadership within community land and forests.” The meeting will bring together participants from 15 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America who are actively engaged in advocacy around women’s tenure rights to land and forests, including representatives from indigenous networks, women’s networks, non-governmental organizations, and research institutions.
