Cadasta is pleased to announce the release of our new Global Impact Dashboard (GID). Designed with our partners’ needs in mind, the GID makes it easier than ever to visualize and share the land and resource rights data collected using Cadasta’s Platform and suite of tools. In doing so, our hope is that the Global Impact Dashboard will serve as a critical resource for our partners as well as policymakers and practitioners interested in global land, property and resources rights issues.
The new dashboard was designed and implemented using Esri technology and incorporates the latest project data from Cadasta’s internal customer relationship management (CRM) system, Insightly. The data published on the GID includes summary and disaggregated historical data from all of Cadasta’s projects and can be used in various Esri applications such as web maps, dashboards, and web apps.
The Global Impact Dashboard consists of several dashboards in one and a global map of countries where Cadasta operates. By clicking on a specific country in the map, you can view a list of projects in that location. Project names and details are shown based on the privacy level defined by the partner.
The data on the GID can be viewed in the following ways:
The General Statistics tab shows the most frequently asked metrics such as number of households, people, hectares, and parcels documented on the Cadasta Platform.
Land and Demographics:
The Land and Demographics tab shows additional metrics such as distribution of age, gender, and current land tenure status.
The Country-level Statistics tab displays the aggregated metrics for projects in a particular country.
Project Type Statistics:
The Project Type tab allows the user to review metrics for projects that represent a specific use case, for example, agriculture, urban, women’s land rights, etc.
We will continue to improve the Global Impact Dashboard by adding new metrics on impact data, perception of tenure security, and other data points that are important for partners and for gaining a better understanding of land and property rights globally. The Cadasta Platform also allows each partner to create their own dashboards for reporting and visualization. Cadasta’s technology team is happy to assist partners to create and embed their own dashboards on their websites or in reports.
If you have questions or ideas for additional land and property rights metrics, please let us know. We are open to your ideas and feedback as we work to make the Global Impact Dashboard more comprehensive, dynamic, and useful.
