Women's Rights to Productive Assets - Land: Lessons Learnt from Uganda

In this paper, [M. Rugadya] present[s] two key aspects of good practices and lessons learnt based on my experience in drafting Uganda’s national land policy and extensive experience as researcher and grant-maker in the East Africa region. The first aspect is that of content including agenda setting for policy and legislation – that specify which rights are accessible or open to women and how women attain them. The second aspect leans more to the policy drafting process on aspects of involvement, inclusion and participation of women and their representatives in the design, preparation and implementation of policy and legislation. To conclude I offer some thoughts on what the guidelines could do, to support the efforts of realising women’s rights to productive assets especially land.
