Cadasta is a technical service provider of land expertise and technology for individuals, communities, organizations, governments, and businesses looking to secure land rights to build stronger, more sustainable communities.
Cadasta uses innovative technology, services, and advocacy to advance global land and resource rights. We target the world’s tenure-insecure people in rural, urban, and peri-urban areas left out of top-down government land registry systems. Recognizing that every partner is unique, our tools and services can accommodate a wide range of technical capabilities and resources and can be applied to a variety of different sectors.
Cadasta offers an accessible and flexible suite of mobile and web-based tools designed to help users collect, manage, store, and analyze land and resource rights data. Our platform and tools are built on the principles of open standards and access, and are powered by Esri ArcGIS technology—the world’s leading, cloud-based mapping and analytics platform.
Cadasta’s services are participatory, demand-driven, and tailored to local project needs. Our goal is to strengthen our partners’ capacity to map and collect data through training materials and sessions adapted to local use. As land, development, GIS, and data professionals, we provide expertise that supports partners as they design gender-sensitive approaches, identify and mitigate conflict, and build local knowledge of land systems to advance tenure security.
The platform presents the data in a way that is quite useful. As we get deeper into our analysis, it will prove even more useful.
Cadasta demonstrates the value add of these digital tools. With their technology, we can record the data faster, reduce errors, and in the end, produce land records that are even easier to share with government.
We are eager to expand our pilot project further and it is now tested and proven that it can work. Our staff are using this tool and sharing our knowledge. These digital tools are making everything easier.
Cadasta Platform helps to manage our landowner’s household information together, that ultimately helped to support vulnerable landowners during digital land registration in Bangladesh.
The Cadasta platform makes community mapping easy and possible by offering tools that were previously only available to the State or powerful elites.
