This resource from USAID provides practical guidance on how to promote gender equality and social inclusion in customary land documentation processes in Zambia. The guide is targeted at all stakeholders directly involved in customary land documentation in Zambia, including civil society organizations, community leaders, traditional leaders, and international organizations and donors. The document includes technical guidance on specific steps in the process: preparation and planning, community land documentation and resource governance, household certification, and land administration and application. It is nicely structured and laid out, however it is very ‘wordy’ rather than ‘visual’, and only in English, which suggests it will be of more benefit to the more literate and educated stakeholders than to the majority of people whose land is being documented.
