This project aims to strengthen the knowledge and skills of young men in Kenya and Zambia in order to embrace positive masculinity attitudes and behaviours that support gender equality and the protection of women’s access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
While there is a growing body of information available about child marriage globally, relatively little comparative work has been done to examine its different manifestations, experiences and impacts in different settings.
Over the past few years, large-scale acquisitions (purchases, leases, or other arrangements) of farmland in developing countries by individuals, corporations, and foreign governments have presented both economic opportunities and threats to traditional livelihoods.
In additional to its illegal nature, early marriage results in a chain of negative consequences for girls who are its victims and represents a major barrier to the economic and social development process.
The objective of this project is to test whether the Food and Agriculture Organization's Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security can help increase accountability for large-scale land acquisitions in Mali, Nigeria, Uganda, and South Africa.
