Mainstreaming Gender Issues in Land Administration - Awareness, Attention and Action

The paper follows up on the FIG-Guidelines on Women’s Access to Land and suggests for the surveying community courses of action for specific mainstreaming tasks. Research on land tenure in a socio-economic context has been done by different professional groups (lawyers, economists, anthropologists, etc.). It is proposed to work towards mainstreaming of gender issues by using this knowledge and prepare new literature on land tenure, cadastre and land administration, taking into account the needs of practitioners.
