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.
Cadasta Foundation provides an innovative, cost-effective global technology platform that collects and manages property ownership, occupancy, and spatial data. The organization works to ensure that local cultures are respected and stakeholders’ privacy and security are protected during the process. Cadasta engages with national land agencies to define new processes to formalize crowdsourced land rights and to promote greater transparency through the adoption of open data principles.
With Omidyar Network’s support, Cadasta is creating an ecosystem to improve the protection of resource and property rights around the world.
