RWA Madagascar: International Day of Peasant Struggles

The international Day of peasant struggles this year has been marked by the gathering of women peasants around the world to discuss how to assert their rights and have their voices be heard so that they are no longer being considered as second class citizens. As for Madagascar, rural women put the emphasis on their difficulties to access to the land, water, and seeds which is by no means an isolated case since all their sisters are undergoing the similar situation.

Concerns are focused on the way in which to better advocate and influence decision makers to move towards a humanization of peasants through recognizing the UNDROP and adjusting national policies to their specific needs. Aside from attending webinars, the RWA members in the Lemur’s island were also visiting the ecological and biological showcase in the northern part of the Antananarivo city.
