Dear Cadasta Community,
With the World Bank Land and Poverty Conference around the corner, we at Cadasta are looking forward to connecting with colleagues from near and far. Coming promptly on the heels of International Women’s Day, this year’s Land and Poverty Conference presents an opportunity to further shine a spotlight on women's land rights.
Throughout the months of March and April, we are partnering with the Land Portal and eleven other organizations to advocate for women’s land rights by spotlighting the stories of real women from around the world. The campaign will conclude with an interactive webinar to highlight the critical links between securing women’s land rights and promoting sustainable development and will feature selected stories from the Her Land Her Story Campaign. We hope you can join us in promoting women’s land rights by joining our webinar and reading and sharing the featured stories.
In addition to the Her Land Her Story Campaign, we have a number of other exciting project, platform, and partner developments that we are excited to share with you in this newsletter. Please read on.
Frank Pichel, Interim CEO
