Organisations de la société civile et de populations autochtones qui soutiennent l’égalité des droits fonciers

 

Abantu for Development is a non-governmental organization (NGO) established in 1991 by African women based in Europe. It is a grassroots organization advocating for women rights, particularly for women’s land rights. The Regional Office for Western Africa (ROWA) is based in Accra and coordinates all Abantu programmes in the West African sub-region. In 2003, Abantu-ROWA initiated a research and advocacy programme that led to the creation a document known as The Women’s Manifesto for Ghana. The manifesto sets up a series of positions and requests on land reform; titling and registration process; representation of women in the land commission; transformation of customary tenure systems; equity in access to and control of land; guarantee of women’s inheritance rights (21). http://www.abantu-rowa.org/

The Network for Women’s Rights in Ghana (NETRIGHT) is a coalition of civil society organisations and individuals working to promote gender justice in economic and land policies. In 2008, NETRIGHT, after conducting broad consultations with women’s groups on a national level, issued a series of recommendations for the government to provide for equal access to ownership and to guide assistance to national policies that promote gender equality (29).
