There is a need to treat the system as a whole to ensure human rights are provided to the weak, and that through this process it will be possible to generate a positive change for women.
On Wednesday 8th February, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association of the UK hosted a lunchtime lecture on “Securing Women’s Land Rights in Southern and Eastern Africa”. This event took place at the Houses of Parliament and was chaired by Heidi Alexander MP, with guest speakers Elizabeth Daley of Mokoro Ltd, Ruchi Tripathi of ActionAid International, and Simon Levine of ODI.
The lecture was well-attended, with approximately 40 participants, including a delegation of MPs from Uganda and the Labour Party’s Baroness Kinnock.
