Our mission is to be the leading provider of technical tools and services to support the documentation of land and resource rights to build stronger, more sustainable communities.

Our Vision

To build a world where even the most marginalized individuals and communities can benefit from the opportunities afforded by secure land and natural resource rights.

Putting Land Rights on the Map

Founded in 2015, Cadasta Foundation develops and promotes the use of simple digital tools and technology to help partners efficiently document, analyze, store, and share critical land and resource rights information. By creating an accessible digital record of land, housing, and resource rights, we help empower individuals, organizations, communities, and governments with the information they need to make data-driven decisions and put vulnerable communities and their needs on the map.

Our Values

Cadasta was founded on the belief that individuals, communities, organizations, and governments, even in the most remote locations, should be able to document their rights to land and natural resources. Our values, which we carry with us in all of our relationships and activities, are designed to support this goal.

Our Approach

We believe that land rights are the foundation of stability and prosperity. The unrecognized rights to land deny stability and opportunity to over one billion people worldwide and are a significant barrier to development, undermine confidence in government institutions, and seed conflict and insecurity. Communities and countries seeking economic growth and sustainable development must ensure land rights are documented and secure.
