Profile of Partnership: Uttaran
In an effort to reduce conflict and provide a foundation for sustainable development, the government of Bangladesh has launched an ambitious program to document all land rights in the country and create a modern national digital land registry.
The government enlisted trusted local non-profit Uttaran to ensure that the land rights of poor and vulnerable groups, such as religious minorities, low castes, women, and the elderly, were also documented and included in the registry. As part of this pilot project, Uttaran was also responsible for educating communities, particularly vulnerable groups, about the pilot digital land survey and registration process.
