Gender and land in the Western Balkans - Long version
This FAO-World Bank film addresses the challenges to increasing female land ownership in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia). Although sound legal frameworks protecting women’s rights to own property are in place throughout the region, longstanding customs and traditions continue to favor male property ownership. A joint FAO-World Bank project in the region produced gender-disaggregated data on land ownership for each country, indicating low levels of female ownership. Armed with their new data, country gender teams set about working to reverse the trend in pilot communities.
