Land Tenure Practices and Women's Right to Land : Implications for Access to Natural Resources (Anglophone Cameroon)

Women's right to land in Anglophone Cameroon is subject to two conflicting regimes, customary and statutory. This grant will allow a team of researchers to examine women's right to land under statutory and customary law, and how access to land (or lack of it) affects women's economic status and participation in the management of natural resources. Researchers will carry out a survey and key informant interviews on seven purposively selected sites, and identify best practices. These will, in turn, inform recommendations on how to harmonize the conflicting tenure laws, as well as capacity building exercises for advocates and policymakers.
