The UNCCD, together with FAO and Landesa, is delighted to welcome you to the Gender and Land Tenure Workshop taking place between 14th and 16th of May 2022 at the UNCCD COP15 in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire.

The workshop will be held in three sessions through which participants will be able to:

  • Familiarize themselves with gender and land tenure concepts and terminologies.

  • Strengthen their existing knowledge and share best practices including through examples from recent UNCCD publications, including:
    • Technical Guide on the Integration of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure into the implementation of the UNCCD and LDN
    • Land rights matter for people and the planet – An options paper for raising awareness on responsible land governance for combatting desertification, land degradation, and drought
    • Build dialogue with other participants and key partners.

The workshop is open for all attending the UNCCD COP15. We encourage all participants to register to the workshop in advance; however, walk-in participation is also possible.
