Cadasta works with partners to simplify, modernize, and expedite the documentation of land and resource rights around the world.
CADASTA develops and promotes the use of simple digital tools and technology to help partners efficiently document, analyze, store, and share critical information regarding land and resource rights. The organization is able to achieve this thanks to the work with partners to develop approaches for documenting land and resource rights. Furthermore, CADASTA's objective is to identify data collection needs and the most appropriate tools, and to provide a platform for managing the information on land and resource rights.
CADASTA was founded on the premise that documenting land rights in these varied settings and opening land records up to the public makes them more secure. Even in countries or communities where there is little transparency, accountability, and documentation of land rights, there are steps organizations, individuals, and communities can take to strengthen their rights to land and resources.
CADASTA is dedicated to working in such settings to help partners use simple, low-cost, high-tech tools to efficiently and effectively document their land and resource rights â€” incrementally strengthening their rights to land.
