Landesa Center for Women's Land Rights Fellowship

The Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights is an initiative of Landesa, an international non-profit organization that partners with developing country governments and non-governmental organizations to secure land rights for the world’s poorest people. For over 40 years, we have partnered with over 45 countries on legal reforms that have provided secure land rights to over 100 million families. Currently, Landesa is working in countries as diverse as China, India, Uganda, Rwanda, Liberia, and Burkina Faso.

At the Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights we partner with governments, foundations, and local organizations around the world to research, improve legal frameworks, create tools, pilot innovative approaches, and develop a network of professionals focused on improving the conditions of women and girls by strengthening their access and control over land.

We seek to develop and support a network of professionals who work at national, local, and international levels to strengthen women’s land rights. We want to build the capacity of legal professionals strongly committed to strengthening women’s land rights in developing countries who can become the core of this network.
