For the rights of rural women in Haiti
An UNDEF project in Haiti works to advance the rights and influence of rural women in the North and North-East regions of the island. Using new information and communication technologies, the project promotes natural resource management policies and development programmes that uphold the fundamental rights of women and ensures fair opportunities and services. It focuses on land access issues that women face in this part of the country by strengthening their technical skills so as to give them tools to access information, share their experiences and interact with local and national decision-makers.
