Micah Sarkas, Medeem’s CEO, presented the innovative land documentation efforts that Medeem has been pioneering in Lusaka, Zambia to formalize unplanned settlements.

Medeem has created a method to record and secure land tenure for residents for a number of Zambia’s unplanned settlements by digitally mapping the settlement’s parcels and integrating the data into Lusaka’s geographic information system (GIS).
