Lifting Local Economies, One Parcel at a Time.
Only a small percentage of the developing world’s population receive legal recognition of their land rights, especially where ownership is held informally or based on customary forms of tenure. Without a recognized deed, title or lease, these rightful landholders are unable to gain access to capital and are less likely to make long-term investments in their land. MEDEEM’s ParcelCert® process is designed to assist its clients by moving them positively along the land rights continuum, at each stage leaving them better prepared to protect their land rights claims.
MEDEEM 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 vulnerable by formally connecting them to their land rights.
