Land ownership can be key to economic stability especially in Zambia where farming is a means to self sufficiency. However, often there is no formal record of ownership. In 2015, Akros worked with the USAID Tenure for Global Climate Change Program and the Chipata District Land Alliance (CDLA) to develop a DHIS2-based land tenure reporting platform. The tool enables village-level surveillance of land tenure changes and land disputes, as well as electronic submission of the forms needed to initiate certificate changes and comply with village land committee procedures. In 2017, Akros and TGCC developed an application specifically for use by chiefs to review land parcel data—including a mobile registry of land parcels and owners built from the current DHIS2 reporting system, allowing them to view land ownership history for each individual parcel in their community. This lightning talk will discuss the gains seen through the reporting platform since 2015, as well as early responses to the chief application.
