Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professionals Program
The Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professional Program is cultivating a network of qualified professionals who are strongly committed to strengthening women’s land rights. The program will boost visiting professionals’ capacity to effectively strengthen women’s land rights, foster motivation and ability to actively participate in this network, and reinforce the commitment to working on women’s land rights.
Landesa’s experience working with multicultural programs suggests that a hands-on, intensive program working alongside peers from different countries and with different fields of expertise will be beneficial to all parties. It will create a fertile ground for learning and will promote the level of group cohesion required to sustain the long-lasting network of professionals we aim to develop.
