Since our founding in 2014, dozens of organizations around the world have trusted us to help them collect, analyze, and store sensitive information about land and resource rights.
Cadasta’s suite of digital tools has been used by partners in: Indonesia, Nigeria, India, Bangladesh, Kenya, Tanzania, Haiti, Nepal, Myanmar, Kosovo, USA
In Bangladesh, the non-profit Uttaran used Cadasta’s tools to document the land rights of more than 13,000 families. The government followed up by issuing formal land records to all of these families and incorporating the data from this project into their official government digital land registry.
Cadasta’s suite of digital tools is being used in Indonesia to document the rights of smallholder oil palm farmers who lack formal land tenure. Through the documentation of land use and rights local officials can issue localized land rights documentation and land use permits, which plays a key role in ensuring that palm oil is harvested sustainably, and can eventually lead to traceability of palm oil and compliance with Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification. Such a program is critical to boosting income for smallholders farming sustainably and protecting forests.
Cadasta’s suite of digital tools was used by the World Bank on a pilot to successfully document and formalize land rights for a group of widows of the Balkan War.
Looking ahead, Cadasta plans to partner with organizations to document, and thereby strengthen, the land and resource rights of an estimated 3.4 million women and men by the end of 2020.
