New WOLTS Blog and Webinar Report

  • 14 July 2021

We are excited to publish a new WOLTS blog written by project team leader, Elizabeth Daley. The blog, ‘To secure equal rights to land, bring men and women together’, is a reflective piece focused on the approach undertaken by the WOLTS project team towards strengthening women’s land rights in Mongolian and Tanzanian pastoralist communities. The blog demonstrates the success of the WOLTS methodology using evidence collected from the latest rounds of feedback on the project’s gender and land champions training programme. It stresses the importance of engaging both women and men equally from beginning to end. This latest blog, which has been simultaneously published on the Land Portal, follows on from the recent WOLTS publication of the ‘Women and Community Land Rights: Investing in Local Champions’ report. Mokoro also hosted a webinar in collaboration with the Land Portal and the International Land Coalition, along with project partners People Centered Conservation (PCC) and HakiMadini, to present findings from the WOLTS experience so far. A recording of the webinar is available online as well as the webinar report in English; French, Mongolian and Kiswahili versions will be published at the beginning of August.
