Secure access to land for a range of land users has increasingly come to be seen as a critical aspect in the attainment of various development goals, from poverty reduction and food security, through women's empowerment and social equity, to the sustainable management of natural resources. For farmers and all kinds of commercial ventures – small and large – secure tenure over land assets is part of an enabling environment for investment that raises productivity, creates income and helps to overcome poverty and food insecurity. For women, having secure tenure rights over land and associated natural resources, as well as housing and business assets, can be critical to attaining effective equal rights and power within the household, community and society. The respect and protection of legitimate tenure rights can be important to the realization of a range of human rights, include rights to adequate housing and food, and the territorial rights of indigenous peoples.
