India - draft National Land Reforms Policy
This Bill was introduced in the parliament by Ministry of Rural Development; Government of India in July 2013. The increasing demand of land acquisition for housing, industrialization and several other purposes; diversion of agricultural land for non-agricultural purposes; the stagnating agricultural yields and the empirical evidence on the utility of small farms, all point towards the revisiting the issue seriously. More importantly, inequitable distribution of benefits from the new land use, insufficient quantity of compensation, and rehabilitation not being implemented properly is leading to enormous dissatisfaction among the affected people. In short, to address a number of critical issues related to land in the current juncture, the need for a National Land Policy today is more urgent than ever before. Such a policy would be based upon Tehsil, District, Region and State level master plans. This will clearly delineate areas unfit for agricultural use and therefore reserved for industrial and other non-agricultural purposes, obviating and minimizing the need for acquisition of land that gives rise to displacement,landlessness and unrest. This policy outlines a very clear strategy of creating a large pool of land so that every family's right to land is fully honoured. The policy proceeds to suggest a just and equitable method of allotting land on a priority basis to the marginalized, especially marginalized women. Policy provisions are also made in such a way that common property resources supplement the needs of the poor and deprived.

South Africa: Celebrating 60th Anniversary of Women's Charter in South Africa
The month of August is Women’s Month. South Africans will celebrate the role that women played in the attainment of democracy 20 years ago, which lead to the recognition and guaranteeing of a wide range of human rights, including gender rights, adopting a plethora of policies, legislations and programmes as well as ratifying numerous global instruments on the rights of women to gender equality. A number of historic marches, most famously the 1956 march against apartheid dom-pas laws, bear sufficient testimony to the role women played in carrying the burden of liberating this country. Yet the struggle continues for women’s emancipation and empowerment even in the post-apartheid era due to persistent structural impediments in the way of gender equality.
