Women’s Land Tenure Security

Friday 1 September 2017

This seminar on Mokoro’s long-term, multi-country and action-oriented strategic research project on Women’s Land Tenure Security (WOLTS) offered the first opportunity in the UK to hear directly from the WOLTS team about some of their initial findings from almost two years of rigorous research in Mongolia and Tanzania.

The WOLTS team have been investigating the intersection of gender and land relations in four pastoralist communities in mineral-rich areas of Mongolia and Tanzania. The seminar set out key early findings and provided some insight into the participatory approach and methodology that the team have developed in their work in the communities through various fieldwork phases since October 2015.

Mokoro was delighted that team members from its WOLTS partners, HakiMadini in Tanzania and People Centred Conservation in Mongolia, were able to speak at the seminar alongside core Mokoro team members. The seminar was chaired by our WOLTS Team Leader, and Mokoro Principal Consultant, Dr. Elizabeth Daley.

The WOLTS team greatly appreciated the very warm reception and positive response and feedback from seminar attendees, who engaged in a lively discussion after the presentations.

More information about the WOLTS project is available here. The presentations from our seminar will be published on our WOLTS webpage later this year. To ensure you receive notification of this and of the publication of a series of reports on the full WOLTS findings, please sign up to our WOLTS mailing list by emailing zdriscoll@mokoro.co.uk
