Ensuring Gender Equality in Land Tenure: Third Regional Conference on Legal Security in the Western Balkans

10/06/2018

On the 8 June 2018 in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), UINL, FAO and GIZ (German Cooperation Agency) held the third Joint Regional Conference on Legal Security in the Balkans. 

The event brought together more than a hundred experts (lawyers, public authorities, university teaching staff, researchers, notaries).

The Conference focused on ways to ensure women's land tenure rights while respecting, on the one hand, the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted in 2000, especially the fifth one on gender equality and the FAO Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests.

This meeting highlights the role of the notarial function on themes of general interest relating to vulnerable people, in this case particularly focused on gender issues. This third edition was a big step forward from the previous ones as it presented practical guidelines extremely useful for the profession and for the dissemination of the notarial work. It was also a step forward in strengthening the relations that UINL has established with international and supranational organizations. 

Following the Conference, GIZ and FAO elaborated draft guidelines that details the areas where notarial expertise is essential.

UINL was invited to review the draft guidelines before they are finalized also in view of enlarging their scope to other regions of the world as well as to include other barriers that face vulnerable populations.
