Fit For Purpose Land Titling - Secure land rights documents for smallholder farmers

The land titling solution aims at delivering affordable land titles at scale to smallholder farmers by working in partnerships with the world's largest food companies, traders and governments. Meridia's solution provides smallholder farmers with formal land rights documents that put them on the path to a better income, autonomy and the freedom to take care of their farmland. On top of that, land mapping and titling provide the companies with solid insights into the value chain and traceability to farm level, preventing reputation risks from practices like deforestation and improving the return on investment in farmer productivity programs. By working together, land documentation is provided to the people who need it the most, families living off the land in places like Ghana and Indonesia. These families are smallholder farmers, the very ones producing the worlds food, such as rice, coffee, cocoa, palm oil and tea. Not only do these farmers produce our food, but they are also first in line to protect the world's forests, as they often live in or around the rainforests that are critical for maintaining biodiversity and combatting climate change. With a land document, these farmers can invest in the future of their land and their children.
