Increasing Women
"Increasing Women's Access to Land: Advancing the Conversation" provides insight into the on-going issue of land tenure for women in Ghana. Secure access to land and land ownership for women is vitally important for farmers, including those whom the GROW project works with in Ghana's Upper West Region. Many studies have shown that land ownership and improved access to land for women can increase food security and protect natural resources. On November 18, 2017, GROW hosted a land tenure forum in Wa, Ghana, to inform communities and begin developing strategies on land tenure for Ghanaian women. Read more about this exciting event and how GROW is working to advance the conversation on land access.
