Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professionals Program

The Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professionals Program is managed by Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights.

The Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights is an initiative of Landesa, a global land rights organization that has partnered with more than 50 countries to help strengthen land rights for more than 120 million families.

The Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights works with governments and civil society to champion and advise on standards, policies, and tactics for strengthening women’s land rights; create tools and pursue innovative solutions; and nurture a global network of professionals and organizations collaborating to improve the conditions and status of women and girls by strengthening their access and control over land and resources.

The Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professionals Program seeks to cultivate a network of qualified professionals from around the world who are strongly committed to securing women’s land rights at local, national, and international levels. Our program goals are to enhance and learn from participants’ expertise, to support their commitment to securing women’s land rights, and to foster participation in a global women’s land rights network.
This is a competitive program that begins with a five-week period of intense training, mentoring, and experience sharing with land tenure experts at Landesa’s headquarters in Seattle, Washington. Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their expertise, gain and impart comparative knowledge around legal and policy reform and implementation; expand the set of approaches to designing, executing, and evaluating women’s land rights interventions; and improve their impact by honing leadership, management, and communication skills.
Program participants work closely with one another and with Landesa staff to develop their skills, expertise, and commitment to support one another by:
  • Participating in and contributing to substantive and comparative discussions
  • Sharing knowledge and expertise through presentations and informal conversations
  • Providing and receiving constructive feedback
  • Fostering group cohesion built on trust and openness to facilitate the growth of a global network of women’s land rights professionals
