Cadasta, launched in 2014, is a small, decentralized 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.
Dignity for All
This is the foundational spirit of who we are and how we function as a team and as individuals.
Collaboration at Cadasta isn’t just about working together towards shared goals. This lens extends beyond our own staff to include our collaboration with external partners and the land sector at large.
We empower our staff to take control of their own work and schedule, take risks, and learn from mistakes in a supportive environment. We provide our partners with tools, methodologies, and knowledge to make decisions on how best to document and assert their constituents’ land and resource rights.
Our team has an overwhelming 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. We promote the development of disruptive, outside-the-box solutions that can meet our partners’ challenges.
At Cadasta, our culture is built on transparency. We share knowledge freely and facilitate teaching, learning, and the open exchange of ideas. We are committed to open source technology and we advocate for open data with governments.
