People who reside in informal or unplanned settlements face limited opportunity to improve their economic livelihoods. To grow and prosper, residents need their property rights legitimized by being officially included in the country’s legal system.  MEDEEM has been working to regularize large numbers of these unplanned settlements across Zambia.  In each settlement area, all parcels are mapped and resident’s biographical data is collected and integrated into the Government of Zambia’s GIS. Over 50 Unplanned Settlements across 12 Council jurisdictions have been engaged within the past 3 years. “ESRI’s AGOL suite of configurable applications have enabled Medeem to reach out to augment the technology efforts of our various local council partners, thus, bringing real-world solutions to bear within Zambia” – Ebenezer Odoi (Medeem, CTO).
