[ONLINE] - Innovations in Demand-Driven Property Registration


Approximately 1 billion people globally have insecure rights to their land and homes, leaving them vulnerable to conflict, hunger, poverty, and gender-based violence. A major contributor to property insecurity is that a quarter of the world’s population lacks formal property documents.

But despite the proven benefits of land and housing documentation, governments across much of the world have failed to provide this service.

Over the last decade, non-governmental actors, namely private social enterprises and non-profits, have emerged to alleviate this bottleneck and deliver land registration efficiently. But scaling these services一and making them affordable for low-income customers一is not easy.

Please join the Future of Land and Housing Program and Suyo, a social enterprise that provides tech-enabled land rights services to low-income households in Colombia, for an online event to discuss: How can organizations remove the barriers to scaling fee-based, demand-driven property registration, and how can they build innovative financing models that make this service accessible for low-income customers?
