Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professionals Program
The application process for the 2016 Visiting Professionals Program is now closed.
The Women’s Land Rights Visiting Professional Program cultivates a network of grassroots activists, government officials, NGO leaders, researchers, and academics strongly committed to strengthening women’s land rights.
The program’s primary component is an intensive, multiweek training (five to six weeks) held at Landesa’s headquarters in Seattle. This experience affords participants the opportunity to:
- Identify and address challenges to securing women’s land rights within the local and broader global development context, as well as geographic, social, and political realities.
- Expand the set of options, approaches, and potential solutions based on comparative experiences and expertise in legal and policy reform and implementation and in the design, execution, and evaluation of women’s land rights interventions.
- Foster a worldwide network of women’s land rights colleagues to serve as resource and support.
- Enhance their impact with stronger leadership, management, and communication skills.
