Access to Water and Land - Dimitra Clubs in Niger

2015

This five-minute video shows how the FAO-Dimitra Clubs in the Niger have been crucial in ensuring women’s access to land and water, while contributing to nutrition, food security, gender equality and reducing rural poverty at the same time. The transformative approach of the Dimitra Clubs induces behavioural changes in various aspects of daily life for individuals, households and communities in rural areas. 

The video is part of a series entitled "Impact of FAO-Dimitra Clubs: Empowering Rural People," about the Dimitra Clubs, a successful gender-transformative approach developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

FAO-Dimitra Clubs are groups of rural women and men who decide to meet regularly to discuss the challenges they face in their daily lives, make decisions together and take collective action to solve community problems with their own means. Since 2006, 1500 FAO-Dimitra Clubs have been set up in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, the Niger and Senegal.

The series was produced by Esprit Libre Production and FAO-Dimitra.
