The Cadasta Foundation uses technology and advocacy to address the challenges of capturing property rights data around the world. Seeing technology as the great equalizer, the organization strives to effect change through a culture of open access, collaboration, and community.
The Cadasta Foundation provides an innovative, cost-effective global technology platform that collects and manages property ownership, occupancy, and spatial data. While doing so, it ensures that local cultures are respected and stakeholders’ privacy and security are protected.
The organization engages with national land agencies in order to define new processes to formalize crowdsourced land rights and promote greater transparency through the adoption of open data principles. Its world-class, global research and practitioner network supports knowledge and resource sharing.
Working with individuals, communities, local CSOs/NGOs, and government agencies, the Cadasta Foundation creates an ecosystem to improve the protection of resource and property rights around the world.
