Strengthening Women’s Voices in the Context of Agricultural Investments: Lessons from Tanzania

By: International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Tanzania Women Lawyers Association (TAWLA), Man-Kwun Chan, Grace Kamugisha, Mary Kessi, Annmarie Mavenjina

The report constitutes one of four countrywide assessments produced under the International Institute for Environment and Development’s (IIED) ‘Gender, land and accountability in the context of agricultural and other natural resource investments’ initiative. The goal of the initiative is to strengthen rural women’s livelihood opportunities by empowering them in relation to community land stewardship and increasing their ability to hold agricultural investors in East and West Africa to account.

This report provides a backdrop of relevant policies and practice; a gender analysis of the policy framework governing land and investments; and recommendations on how to work towards land rights securing and better inclusion in land governance processes for women in Tanzania.
