IFPRI 2019 Annual trends and outlook report
This report compliments the Prindex Comparative Report by focusing on a specific aspect of land and tenure insecurity
Provides a framework for designing land tenure and governance interventions around women’s and girls’ land and property rights.
"This manual is intended to be a practical learning aid and helpful reference guide for community-based paralegals and organizations running community-based paralegal programs."
Introducing the 2019 EM2030 SDG Gender Index
An online, interactive guide with a curated set of resources for designing or improving community-based paralegal programs.
Tool One; Job Description, provides sample criteria for Community Based Facilitators (CBFs) who will work with women, groups, and communities. It is important that these CBFs be selected carefully. This sample job description outlines the core duties of CBFs in order to hire the best candidates.
Tool Two, a two-part self assessment, should form the basis for training and supporting Community Based Facilitators (CBFs). It assesses each CBF's work experience, experience with the communities, and understanding of gender and social dynamics regarding land and resources in the community.
Tool Three, Sample Logic Framework, is linked to the Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment (Tool Four), and provides sample outcomes and indicators to measure women's land tenure security. The framework should be amended based on context and should be developed after initial qualitative research on land and resource security for women.
Tool Four, Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment, forms part of a robust Monitoring and Evaluation plan, and should be conducted with both project participants and a control group. Questions should be tailored to the particular project context.
Tool Five is a guide to conducting a needs assessment to form the basis for curriculum development and engagement. This example focuses on understanding the land and resource tenure situation and women’s experiences of tenure.
Community-based Facilitators (CBFs) should write a monthly report for each group. Tool Six - Monthly Reporting Format Template provides suggested items for inclusion in this report.
Tool Seven is a template for group meeting minutes, which should be kept by the groups themselves where feasible and should be recorded by CBFs. This template also includes guidance for using journals for ongoing monitoring and evaluation.
Tool Eight - a template that includes suggestions for how to easily chart out a plan for implementation, including common methods for engagement. This implementation plan begins after the activities of identifying and hiring Community Based Facilitators, identifying project participants, and conducting the baseline and needs assessment.
Tool Nine -Action Points for Groups includes group work to identify problems and aspirations, ask for confirmation, amendment, or addition, and identify action points is next. Two samples of action points and a blank table are part of this tool.
Tool Ten is a sample curriculum for an interactive three-hour mediation training. It includes sections on conflict, conflict analysis, and the process of mediation.
Tool Eleven is a sample curriculum for assertiveness trainings. It includes two sessions: one focused on public speaking, and one focused on lobbying and advocacy.
"This toolkit gathers together information on ten tools that have been successfully used by members of the International Land Coalition (ILC) to promote, protect and strengthen indigenous peoples’ and local communities’ land rights. It is intended to facilitate mutual learning based on the good practices of specific ILC members."
International Land Coalition (ILC) Land Inequality Research Initiative - Paper 1
"...Interactive global platform to provide maps and other information on lands that are collectively held and used by Indigenous Peoples and local communities."
Future Development Blog
"The general objective of this paper is to explore the nexus between land distribution and economic development. The specific objectives are to: (i) identify which land distribution programs/activities contribute to economic development; (ii) investigate the role of stakeholders in land distribution programs that affect the growth of productivity; and (iii) assess the deficiencies of current land distribution policies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America to explore how economic development theories contribute to decreasing income inequality.

Attendees of the November 12th gathering on Promising Practices in Gender and Extractives were asked what key question or questions had come up during the day’s presentations and discussions, and what answers or approaches for finding answers they had.
Support for aligning your operations with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure
"Taking off from previous initiatives of the Land Watch Asia Campaign, this book discusses key issues in access to land and tenurial security for small farmers, rural women, indigenous peoples and other rural sectors in eight Asian countries. It also analyses the mechanisms needed for responsible land governance and the resolution of growing land conflicts."

"This brief highlights the intersections between land programs/projects and violence against women and girls (VAWG) while providing recommendations for policy, institutional and community level interventions that may address VAWG or the underlying norms and attitudes that contribute to the use of violence against women. We hope Task Teams take time to read this short brief, along with the resource guide introduction. We hope to see more project related activities or components related to the prevention or response to VAWG within our land operations in the future and hope this resource give you a starting point for considering this development challenge affecting 1/3rd of women worldwide."
The importance of the charcoal sector is growing rapidly in Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to providing an affordable energy source for residents in the continent's growing urban centers, the charcoal value chain offers a critical income source for millions of people. Despite recent studies suggesting that women are taking on an increasing role in charcoal value chains, data and analysis on the role of women and the influence of gendered power relations in the often male-coded charcoal value chain have remained limited. This literature review interrogates the gender dynamics of participation and benefits across charcoal value chains in Sub-Saharan Africa. We find significant support for women's participation throughout value chains, thereby contrasting conventional views of charcoal as a male activity. However, while dynamics change between different contexts, women's participation tends to be significantly higher in retail, while women tend to constitute a minority in other parts of the value chain – often joining the sector in the absence of alternative livelihood opportunities. The review also finds that gender differences exist across various nodes in terms of the scope, nature and outcomes of participation. While significant regional differences exist, our study finds that participation and outcomes tend to generally be influenced by gender differences and inequalities in: 1) access to and control over productive resources and income; 2) social and political capital, and; 3) gender roles and responsibilities. Importantly, other axes of social differentiation, such as generation, marital status, wealth and social class, often intersect with gender relations in influencing outcomes. In addition to structuring the extent, nature and outcomes of women and men's participation, we argue that gender roles and relations may significantly influence the efficiency and sustainability of the charcoal value chain. Based on our findings, we call for placing gender at the core – rather than periphery – of charcoal value chain studies, and propose a conceptual framework for incorporating gender analysis in future value chain studies in the charcoal sector.
Synthesis Report Based on Findings from Three Global Case Studies; Côte d’Ivoire, Papua New Guinea, and Peru.
This report uses household-level data from 33, mostly developing, countries to analyse perceptions of tenure insecurity among women.
