Figuring out who owns bits of land isn’t as easy as it should be, but is vital for economic rights, addressing inequality and injustice, and meaningful environmental regulations. Which is why an alliance of Omdena, World Resources Institute (WRI), Code for Africa, and Stanford University are trying to identify what belongs to who in Kenya. They’re working with 32 000 documents and a bunch of AI specialists to try and map out land ownership in the country, and making some headway and uncover “hidden actors and interests”.
