The number of people living in urban and peri-urban settings has increased exponentially in the past century. Although urbanization is associated with higher incomes and development, it also produces extreme urban poverty.
Around the world, city officials and local and international organizations are looking to gain a better understanding of how many people are living in informal settlements and are in need of public services. Cadasta’s tools make it easier than ever to efficiently document, analyze, manage, and share critical land and resource rights information.
By creating an accessible digital record of land, housing, and resource rights, we empower residents of informal settlements, as well as the organizations and governments that service them, with the information they need to make data-driven decisions and put vulnerable urban communities and their needs on the map.
With Cadasta’s Technology, Tools, and Services
City Officials and Municipal Governments can overcome the constraints and challenges imposed by traditional land administration systems to more efficiently document, analyze, and manage urban property data. Communities and Organizations can use Cadasta’s tools to document their land claims and advocate for improved access to public services such as water, electricity, sewage, roads, and parks. Residents can use the data documented and managed on Cadasta’s platform to advocate for and defend their land rights.
