LTS

Rights to land and resources are at the center of poverty reduction, food security, conflict, urbanization, gender equality, climate change, and resilience. An estimated 70% of land in developing countries is not documented due, in large part, to the complexity, cost, and time required. Under its new USAID Land Technology Solutions (LTS) contract, SSG will work to combat insecure land tenure through the use of accessible technology solutions. SSG hopes to pilot, monitor, and scale the USAID’s Mobile Applications to Secure Tenure (MAST) technology suite in up to ten countries – deploying participatory technology approaches to map and document land resources. This delineation will be an essential step toward creating incentives for investment, broad-based economic growth, and good stewardship of natural resources.
