Closing the gender land gap

The effects of land-titling for women in Peru

Forfatter(e): NIBR-notat 2009:120
Formalization of land ownership in developing countries tends to cement gender inequalities. In Peru we find the opposite: A large scale survey show 43 % joint ownership for titlede land compare to 39 % for untitled plots.However, it is more than three times higher than the 13 % joint ownership in a similar survey from 2000. Gender equality might have become even more pronounced as joint ownership increases to 56% for the subsample of titled male-headed couple household.
