Gender equality, restoration and land rights are interrelated issues that affect the lives and livelihoods of millions worldwide. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of land degradation, as they often depend on land for their income, food production, #water supply and fuel. Multi-faceted challenges limit their ability to protect and restore land and to benefit from its resources.
