    Effective policy and legal advice requires a clear understanding of the gaps and discrepancies in the policies and legislation pertaining to gender and land. This paper introduces a Legal Assessment Tool (LAT) for gender-equitable land tenure, developed under the Gender and Land Rights Database (GLRD) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), for the purpose of providing prompt, targeted and effective policy and legal advice to countries working towards gender-equitab le land tenure. It describes the main features of a tool specifically designed to measure the extent to which the legal framework fosters gender-equitable land tenure and provides the results from the application of the LAT to three African countries – Sierra Leone, Madagascar and Morocco. It further reflects on the added value of such a tool in the broader context of rural development and poverty alleviation, with a special focus on the implementation of the VGGTs.
