My SIGI: Build Your Own Ranking
Restricted Resources and Entitlements at a glance: The map shows each country's ranking in the Restricted Resources and Entitlements sub-indicator.
Restricted Resources and Entitlements captures social institutions which restrict women’s access to, control of, and entitlement over economic and natural resources:
- Access to Land measures women's right and de facto access to agricultural land;
- Access to Property other than Land measures women's right and de factor access to other types of property, especially immovable property;
- Access to Credit measures women's right and defacto access to bank loans; even though women generally have the legal right to obtain credit, they frequently face restrictions as banks may ask the written permission of a woman's husband or require land a collateral which women are frequently deprived of.
