Community Listeners' Club finds solution to secure access to land for women
Location: Banizoumbou village, Dantoandou, Tillabéri, Niger
Principal organisations: FAO
Innovative approaches can help secure women’s access to land in areas where land is traditionally controlled by men. FAO-Dimitra uses radio and community listener’s clubs to facilitate communication about women’s access to land in traditional communities. In the village of Banizoumbou in Niger dialogue around land through radio and listeners’ groups influenced social dynamics and helped women secure a 99-year lease on agricultural land.
