    Implementation of women’s rights to land, property and housing rights remains one of the more difficult challenges facing the world today. One of the difficulties associated with developing effective laws and policies on land rights stems from the immensely complex and diverse ways by which land is accessed, and the often gaping expanse between the position of formal laws and the reality of women’s lives. Member States and the international community have agreed upon a series of commitments towards the establishment of security of tenure, for example through the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7, Target 11 on the improvement of the living conditions of slum dwellers, and Target 10 on access to improved water and sanitation. There is further political impetus and consensus on promoting women’s security of tenure through equal rights to land, property and inheritance through a host of international human rights standards, and more recently through the elaboration of Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 3 and the 2005 World Summit Outcome, where women’s land, property and inheritance rights are seen as an important indicator of women’s empowerment and human development.
