ifgi participates in technology innovation for land tenure security in East Africa

Sub Saharan African countries like Rwanda, Kenya and Ethiopia have an immense challenge to rapidly and cheaply map millions of unrecognized land rights in the region. Over the next four years the Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) at WWU will collaborate with partners from East Africa and Europe to develop an innovative suite of land tenure recording tools that responds to that challenge.
