Community Driven Land Registry

Unlocking the potential of land ownership

$9 Trillion of capital is locked in undocumented land in the developing world.

~70% of all land in developing countries (owned by over 3 billion people) does not have legally recognized owners. (De Soto 2000, USAID Land Links 2015)

Trustworthy and transparent land registries are a central part of every developed economy which is why the World Bank claims,

“Land is at the center of development challenges.”

Commonlands will unlock the potential of land ownership for billions of people by incentivizing underserved communities to collectively record their existing land registries into a formal, unified, and decentralized property system so their land records are universally accessible and useful for capital formation.
