Gendered impacts of commercial pressures on land

January 2011
Elizabeth Daley (Mokoro) (International Land Coalition Commercial Pressures on Land Report)

An analysis of the gendered impacts of commercial pressures on land, based on a review of the literature and ILC’s country case studies, including Ethiopia, Zambia, Rwanda and Benin. In the present global context of increasing pressures, women are both likely to be affected differently to men by large-scale land deals and disproportionately more likely to be negatively affected than men because they are generally vulnerable as a group.
