Better land rights definitely translate into the ability of one to invest into the land resources. However, it is not just a question of good land rights that will guarantee our food security – this also comes with proper infrastructure.
The relation between food security and ending poverty is clear. You need land to produce and if you do not have access to land, you cannot invest in it in order to increase your productivity.
There is a corelation between having land rights, achieving food security and overcoming poverty. But land isn't the only asset that women and youths require. A package of support must accompany land rights.
