Secure Women’s Land Rights through Beijing+25 Action Coalitions: A gateway towards a feminist economic transformation
Event Timeslots (1)
This session will bring together feminist leaders and partners from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific together to demand their voices be heard and their rights to land and natural resources be incorporated in the Beijing +25 process.
2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action – the strongest global commitments to women’s rights and a sustainable world. As Action Coalitions think about ways to advance women's rights within the Beijing+25 process, OXFAM is organising this event to amplify grassroots voices and knowledge.
Land and natural resources are key drivers of inequality, including gender inequality. Land grabbing, land reforms in urban and rural areas and climate change impacts have both exacerbated women's land rights challenges and led women into abject poverty.
This session will bring together feminist leaders and partners who have worked on women's land rights for the past 25 years. Based on their experience from the grassroots, they will present key contributions to advancing women's rights through the Beijing+25 process.
Interpretation will be available in Nepali Sign Language and Spanish.
