Cadasta Foundation Launches New Global Land Rights Challenge Fund to Secure Land and Resource Rights | Land Portal

Cadasta Foundation has launched its new Global Land Rights Challenge Fund to help partners better leverage Cadasta’s innovative tools and services to document land and resource rights worldwide.

The Land Rights Challenge Fund will feature multiple grant programs through 2021, each designed to advance land rights and tenure security for vulnerable populations around the world.

“At Cadasta, we envision a world where even the most marginalized individuals and communities can benefit from the opportunities afforded by secure land and resource rights.” said Cadasta CEO Amy Coughenour Betancourt. “The goal of the Land Rights Challenge Fund is to support our partners—including grassroots community groups, local nonprofit organizations, and other land rights stakeholders—to better utilize Cadasta’s tools and services to make data-driven decisions and put vulnerable communities and their needs on the map.”

All grants will enable the use of Cadasta’s tools, including mobile applications for data collection and web applications for data management and analysis. Grantees will also have access to Cadasta’s high-quality imagery, data layers, dashboards, and analytical tools for monitoring, advocating, storytelling, and reporting. Cadasta’s platform and tools are built on open standards and access, and are supported by Esri ArcGIS technology—the world’s leading, cloud-based mapping and analytics platform.

The first opportunity under the Fund is the Data Accelerator Grant to help partners overcome challenges and barriers to their data collection efforts. With catalytic grants of up to $10,000 USD, Cadasta partners can expand the impact of household and community geospatial and attribute information to advance efforts to secure land tenure and resource access.

“Many of our partners—both current and future—tell us that they are unable to take full advantage of Cadasta’s tools due to lack of funding, equipment, staffing, or logistics,” said Tony Piaskowy, Programs Director with Cadasta. “The Data Accelerator Grant is designed to help Cadasta’s partners overcome these barriers and equip them with the tools and training they need to effectively and successfully implement their data collection activities.”

The Land Rights Challenge Fund is available in partnership with Omidyar Network and UK Aid. Applications can be submitted through the Cadasta website and will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning November 4th, 2019.
