How can a farmer know for sure that the land they work on is really theirs?
In some cases land holders struggle to prove ownership – and this can lead to fights over land.
In Ghana, for example, around 10% of smallholder farmers are thought not to have any certificate documenting their ownership rights.
A tech company Landmapp is trying to solve the problem with a mobile platform that uses GPS to map and survey smallholder farmers.
Farmers then receive a certified plan of the land and land tenure documentation signed by the surveyor, chiefs and high court.
