Cadasta Leads Update of OpenGovGuide Land Chapter

Over the past month we have been assisting the Transparency and Accountability Initiative in updating the land section of the OpenGovGuide, originally drafted by Global Witness. The updates are centered on updating relevant cases studies, expanding the focus to include urban land issues, and to contextualize how the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure can be implemented, as they had only just been endorsed by the Committee on Food Security when the OpenGovGuide was originally drafted.

Cadasta Foundation and NRGI collaboratively reviewed a subset of annotated contracts from ResourceCountracts.org to identify the range of possibilities in spatial definition of agreements, to extract & map concession areas, and to define processes for automating the mapping of extractive contracts when possible. Consultancy recommendations are presented in this report and will be incorporated into ResourceContracts.org.

Drones and Aerial Observation: A Primer (And a Review)

Kate Chapman, CTO

Imagery can serve as an important starting point in delineating land claims. There are multiple options for obtaining imagery, including existing free imagery (typically from governments), purchase of commercial imagery from satellite providers, aerial collection by aircraft, and use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones).  As part of Cadasta's overall technology strategy, I've been looking into what is available and most appropriate for our partners depending on their specific needs. I'm excited to be attending the launch today of the New America Foundation's drone primer with the support of the Omidyar Network.
