Land certificates guarantee access to farmland for women in Nigeria
In the Dosso region, agriculture is the main economic activity for local communities and the biggest source of household revenue. However, land access for women remains a major obstacle to rural development. According to a study by the Luxembourg Development Cooperation Agency, very few women own land, despite the existence of customary laws which recognize their right to inherit property. The situation is very challenging, but solutions can be found, as shown by the case of Seybou Djamma.
