Project with Cadasta

Project Location: Various locations throughout Colombia

In need of a digital tool to document community land claims, and to track the process of formalization of community lands, Aso Manos Negra partnered with Cadasta. Following a short in-person training, Aso Manos Negra collected data on women’s economic activities and land use from 3,400 households in 17 communities. The group plans to use the data to monitor and empower women to protect their natural resources from illegal activities, and to promote the sustainable use of community resources.
