Roadmap for Inclusion of Female Traditional Leaders in National Land Policy Processes

COLANDEF, in partnership with Wellspring Philanthropic Fund and in collaboration with country-level stakeholders, has since December 2018, implemented the REPAFEL project.

The project has two main outcomes, which are;

  1. Increased understanding of state actors and traditional authorities on the limitations that current Constitutional and Legal provisions impose on Queen Mothers’ participation in policy processes and in land governance

  2. Increased capacity of Queen mothers in national policy processes, land governance, institutional representation and voice As part of the project activities, there was an assessment of the legal and constitutional provisions to ascertain if there was any legal disability for the inclusion of Queen Mothers in national policy processes. The findings from the legal review are summarized in this document, with some explanation on each finding.
