This report is a summary of findings from an in-depth literature review and field research on the gendered nature of land rights in twenty sites in Rwanda (including sites located in the following districts: Rwamagana, Kirehe, Nyaruguru, Muhanga, Karongi, Rubavu, and Gasabo). It fills an important gap in evidence of women’s differential access to and control over land and other productive assets, the kinds of conflicts they experience over those resources, and the ways they attempt to resolve those conflict s. This information is intended to enable the Rwandan Government, INGOs, CSOs, donors and the private sector to develop and adopt policies, procedures and laws that protect women’s rights to property, minimize land-related conflicts, and reduce rural Rwandan’s dependence on scarce natural resources.
This research was undertaken by the Rwanda LAND Project, and was supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
