Welcome to our website
With a warm welcome, dear partners and visitors, allow us to start with a few introductory remarks about the purpose and organisation of these pages through which the Centre for Land, Economy and Rights of Women (CLEAR) intends to inform you on various aspects of the CLEAR’s work. CLEAR is tackling development in Africa through the themes of Land, Economic Empowerment and rights of Women, regarding them as some of the most important objectives for the Region’s development.
CLEAR’s web pages comprise information on the work that has been done and continuing development in the thematic fields, as well as other aspects of CLEAR's approach to the development in the Sub-Saharan Region. With the aim of gaining a better overview, we also provide you with the map of our website, where you can, on one place, see all the contents of our web pages. At the same time, we welcome all your questions and comments about our web pages, as well as about CLEAR’s role and collaborative initiatives.
What is CLEAR?
The Centre for Land, Economy and Rights of Women (CLEAR) is registered as a charitable organisation (Trust), committed to setting up a centre of excellence through addressing social and economic justice. This is achieved by working with landless people, marginalized farmers, especially women, and in solidarity with similar national and regional initiatives working towards improving women’s livelihoods through secure and equitable access and utilization of land-based resources.
CLEAR has taken a lead role with a blueprint advocacy program, namely the Platform for Action on Women’s Land Rights in Eastern Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Southern Sudan).
CLEAR thus, has a regional outreach covering Eastern Africa, with country-specific interventions and linkages established in Southern and Western African. The regional outreach is designed to be in the form of an advisory team and focal points facilitating the work of CLEAR and drawing legitimacy from the stakeholders, which support and constitute those working on land reform agenda.
