Focus on Land in Africa: Tanzania Lesson Brief, Gender and Land Rights
This lesson brief examines the ways in which women's rights groups collaborated and engaged in the land law reform process in Tanzania. It is part of the Focus on Land in Africa: Land Tenure and Property Right online educational tool. Land rights in Tanzania have been the subject of vigorous debate and remain a contested and divisive issue. A revision of the country's land laws in the 1990's presented an opportunity for civil society groups to advocate for progressive change.
