More than half the villages of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are affected by a peculiar issue of tenurial ambiguity called “orange areas.” This issue impacts nearly 1.2 million hectares and 1.5 million, largely poor, landless and tribal families, that depend on these lands for food, fuel, fodder and other sources of income. This lack of tenurial clarity also impacts forest protection outcomes in the state and constrains the achievement of biodiversity, water and climate targets. MAPTenure, the first of its kind Web-based platform brings together dispersed, fragmented and dated data that is necessary to resolve the issue. The platform aims to support efforts by the government, civil society organisations and community based initiatives to bring in clarity on the orange areas.
