There is a tendency to view the sheer volume of land certificates issued in Ethiopia in recent years as a proxy for improvements in women’s land tenure security. While getting land registered in women’s names is a significant step, evidence indicates that focusing on titling alone may not necessarily lead to greater tenure security for women. Control and transfer rights of land for women are affected by broader gendered norms and practices. It is high time to think more deeply around the post-certification agenda so that women can derive the full range of benefits from their land resources.
