If this is your first time using Landscope, you can watch a very short video by clicking here.
Landscope is a system for measuring tenure risk, a term we created to describe the financial risk associated with local opposition to a real asset. This kind of opposition to investments is very common across Africa, Asia and Latin America, often causing significant financial losses and operational headaches.
Over the last seven years, we have looked at over 600 cases of tenure dispute in detail to inform the development of Landscope. The system applies a new approach to analyzing geospatial data about social, environmental and political issues that is designed to help companies and investors in emerging and frontier markets to prepare a proper assessment of tenure risk at project, supply chain or portfolio level.
Landscope isn’t going to replace expert insight, and it won’t eliminate the need to invest time and money to understand the human factors that impact your assets’ performance. But it will help you to structure that process, rationalize its cost against potential losses and make your due diligence more efficient and effective.
We don’t assert that Landscope is a perfect product. And because we are releasing it for general use free of charge, we have a real interest in improving it. If you see something wrong – or even if you receive a result you just don’t agree with – we want to know right away. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our Contact page.
