Medeem: Formalizing Land Rights of the Poor

Commitment by

Corporate Initiatives Development Group, Llc/Medeem

In 2009, Medeem committed to expand the reach of its program in Ghana to document the property rights of the poor and facilitate their access to government land record platforms. This commitment seeks to provide a quarter million of Ghana's most vulnerable people with the dignity, legal empowerment, and increased access to capital that land security provides. Medeem is a unique legal empowerment initiative that provides a self-funding, locally owned and operated, private-sector led approach to the formalization of land rights. By leveraging geospatial technologies and process innovations, Medeem created ParcelCert, an innovative in-county solution to transitioning the land assets of the poor from the informal to the formal sector, thereby creating greater access to capital.
