Elevating Women's Voices in the Fight for Land Rights and Climate Justice: An Interview with Nzira Deus

Last week, governments, development partners, civil society, scholars, and private sector representatives convened at the  World Bank Land Conference in Washington DC, to discuss research, critical issues, and policy related to the land sector. This year's theme, "Securing Land Tenure and Access for Climate Action," emphasized the often-overlooked role of land tenure in climate change adaptation and mitigation. Nzira Deus, Executive Director of WLP’s partner in Mozambique, spoke at the conference about how civil society organizations in Mozambique are bridging the gap between policy commitments and ground-level change, especially when addressing the barriers women face in accessing land rights.
