"This legal progress is notable, but in fact women still face major obstacles to accessing land, especially in rural areas where customary norms regarding control and transfer of land still dominate and are patriarchal in nature. These norms generally emphasize that land is the domain of men, and since women cannot perpetuate the patriarchal line, land must be transferred to men. Women generally do not have land rights under Malian customary law, even though they provide over half of the agricultural labor force and produce most of the food to feed their families. One estimate is that only 20 percent of women engaged in agriculture have access to land" (para...more

"In rural Mali, land continues to be a basic means of subsistence, and is still mostly held and transferred according to customary norms. Male heads of groups or male heads of individual families allocate land to users in one of the following ways: lease; pledge; loan; and inheritance when the male head dies. Sales do not take place in this environment. The 2017 Agricultural Land Law provides for the documentation of customary rights by creating a new type of document: the customary land certificate (attestation de detention cotumière). This certificate can be registered in the new commune-level register of land possession. (World Bank 2008; Camara 2015; GOM 2017b). Inheritance usually...more
