“This program ensures more residents of Lusaka realize title deeds for their houses so they have sustainable shelter security and wealth. We thank MLG.”

Lusaka, Zambia

MLG led a systematic land titling pilot project in Lusaka, Zambia for the Ministry of Land and Natural Resources designed to accelerate and expand its titling program. Using a mobile application that included pre-vectorized high-resolution property images, efficient house-to-house data and signature gathering from homeowners, community verification, and machine learning to validate data accuracy, MLG rapidly gathered the necessary documentation for streamlined land titling on 50,000+ parcels. MLG collected this data in order to support:

  • Simplified and expanded land titling
  • Regularizing unplanned settlements and preventing displacements
  • Reducing inequalities of access to land ownership due to income differences
  • Increasing the revenue base and investment in the country

Following the success of this pilot, the Lusaka City Council selected MLG to lead its property titling program and to develop and deploy a Land Governance Platform (May, 2019).

Kigali, Rwanda

Rwanda’s government is incorporating PKI with blockchain and MLG technologies in its land administration system to facilitate streamlined communication across government agencies. MLG’s work includes:

  • Designing and implementing a paperless land registration proof of concept
  • Enabling the government to more easily share data, enabling easier, more rapid access to information
  • Supporting more efficient and rapid land transfers
  • Improving how Rwandan citizens interact with their land registry and access available services

Removing visits to the land office enhances efficiency and saves time and resources for both government entities and individuals.

MLG is capturing aerial imagery of the island of St. Kitts and providing a comprehensive cadaster system of the island. A cadaster is a visual representation of land and other real property showing the location and extent of property, often with imagery and diagrams.

  • Aerial imagery will provide high-resolution photos and a detailed map of the island
  • Records will be integrated by the Government with their land administration system

Teton County, Wyoming

MLG is providing Teton County Wyoming with an immutable backup of land records on the blockchain, accessible through a convenient web portal.

It is the first county in the United States to record land information (including warranty deeds, mortgages, release of liens, and other similar documents), of all land records registered since 1996 and any subsequent updates, on blockchain on a blockchain-based platform, accessible to the public.

Tulum, Mexico

Tulum, Mexico

MLG is providing the city of Tulum, Mexico with a cadaster system to support the maintenance of spatial parcel data, and a digital land administration system. Accurate, easy-to-use spatial data will enable Tulum to focus its attention on providing services to its citizens and coordinating effective urban planning. In addition:

  • Drone images will provide high-resolution photos and a detailed map of the city
  • MLG will conduct a systematic land titling process to produce digital certificates for homeowners, recognized, verified, and administered by the city
  • Enumerators will use a mobile application that includes pre-vectorized, high-resolution property images, to do efficient house-to-house data and signature gathering from homeowners
  • Upon completion, MLG will deploy a digital land administration system to support the maintenance and transaction of records with the cadastral and treasury offices.

Using drone imagery, systematic land titling and the land administration system to accurately record ownership of properties, the city can ensure that all citizens receive the appropriate services.
