The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has created this helpful database for policy makers, government officials, and others interested in the relationship between gender and land rights. The database contains country level information on "social, economic, political and cultural issues related to the gender inequalities embedded in those rights." As their homepage notes, "disparity on land access is one of the major causes for social and gender inequalities in rural areas." Visitors will note that the database contains information on six categories, including women's property and use rights in the nation's civil code, customary law, land tenure, and civil society organizations which work on such matters. On the site, visitors can view full country reports, compare two or more countries, or create reports on one distinct category. Also, visitors can perform a full text search across all of the reports.
