Cadasta envisions a world where even the most marginalized individuals and communities can benefit from the opportunities afforded by secure land and resource rights. The goal of the Land Rights Challenge Fund is to support Cadasta partners—including grassroots community groups, local nonprofit organizations, and other land rights stakeholders and advocates—to better utilize Cadasta’s tools and services to make data-driven decisions and put vulnerable communities and their needs on the map.
All grants will enable the use of Cadasta’s tools, including mobile applications for data collection and web applications for data management and analysis. Grantees will also have access to Cadasta’s high-quality imagery, data layers, dashboards, and analytical tools for monitoring, advocating, storytelling, and reporting. Cadasta’s platform and tools are built on open standards and access, and are supported by Esri ArcGIS technology—the world’s leading, cloud-based mapping and analytics platform.
