Cadasta is a small team dedicated to harnessing technology to empower marginalized people to assert their land and resource rights. We seek justice in our mission and carry that lens with us in our work with partners and with each other. We invite you to join us as we grow. 


All of Cadasta’s work promotes inclusiveness and participation, even and especially among the most marginalized groups, including women. This is the foundational spirit of who we are and how we function as a team and as individuals.
Our work is guided by our belief in the potential of Cadasta to positively impact millions of people’s lives through innovative tools and approaches to documenting land and natural resources rights.

At Cadasta, our culture is built on transparency. We share knowledge freely and facilitate teaching, learning, and the open exchange of ideas. Our engagement objectives and our desired outcomes are clear, transparent, and communicated freely with all partners.

Collaboration at Cadasta isn’t just about working together towards shared goals. Our engagement activities and mechanisms promote collaboration as a means of developing and implementing more scalable and sustainable outcomes for beneficiaries.
We strive to empower all members of society with tools, methodologies, and knowledge to make data-driven decisions to document and assert their land and resource rights.
