Empowering women to engage effectively in governance
Powerful new Oxfam training of trainers manual in support of Transformative Leadership for African Women's Land Rights programme.
OXFAM together with its partners has developed a Training of Trainers (ToT) manual on Transformative Leadership for Women’s Land Rights (TLWR) as a product of a European Union (EU) funded project named Women’s Land Rights for Inclusive Development and Growth in Africa. The programme covers eight countries, namely, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Togo, and Tunisia and is carried out with the University of the Western Cape through the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS), and The Plateforme des Organisations Paysannes d’Afrique Centrale (PROPAC) PROPAC and in partnership with the International Land Coalition Africa.
The manual was developed in order to introduce TLWR as a tool and to give a contextual background of Women’s Land Rights (WLR), land tenure systems and the impact of Large-Scale Land-based Investment (LSLBI) in Africa. It will be used to train trainers who will then train women and communities on how to use the tool to carries out WLR evidence studies and engage with land tenure reform institutions and LSLBI impact mitigation actors. The manual is also available in French and Portuguese.
The overall aim of the manual is to strengthen the feminist movement by strengthening and organising for gender and land justice. The specific objectives of the manual are:
1. To develop a common and concrete understanding of TLWR in the context of WLR;
2. To create a deeper understanding of attitudes and beliefs about gender and its impact on WLR; and
3. To build the capacity of CSOs and women’s movements to effectively contribute to the enactment
of progressive national and regional WLR legislation and policies.
