The new Gender and Land Rights Database: a hub of information on gender-equitable land tenure
FAO has re-launched its Gender and Land Rights Database (GLRD). The database consists of several main sections: country profiles and gender and land-related statistics. Furthermore, a new Legislation Assessment Tool is included, which offers 30 indicators for measuring progress towards gender equity in land tenure in national policy and legal frameworks. The database provides information, statistics and analysis on the different political, legal and cultural factors that influence women’s land rights throughout the world.
