Overview

Only a small percentage of the world s poor receive legal recognition of their land holdings especially where ownership is informal or based on customary forms of tenure. Without a recognized deed title or lease the poor cannot use their land to gain access to capital. MEDEEM provides a proactive and sustainable process driven solution to bridge the gap between informal land holding and formal land registration.rnrnMEDEEM is taken from the Ghanaian Twi phrase mi din mu meaning in my name. This simple phrase truly captures the intent of the program to provide legal empowerment to the poor by formally connecting them to their land rights.rnrnMEDEEM is able to provide the poor with an affordable means to formalize their land rights by leveraging the efficiencies of GIS technologies with an innovative hybrid business model. Unlike typical top down land registration programs that have often failed to effectively serve the needs of the poor MEDEEM utilizes a unique private sector led approach to drive change from the bottom up one parcel at a time.
