Omidyar Network India seeks to enable secure rights to land, and stable housing access for all by investing in organisations that deploy cost-effective technology tools and innovative delivery models towards this end. We support national priorities in India such as effective land administration, enabling improvement of informal urban settlements, and capacity building within think tanks and other institutions engaged in policy support.
Our work spans the following themes
- Technology innovations that make it easier, faster, and cheaper to access property rights; for example, technology platforms for land information as public good
- New models of documentation for improved delivery of property rights; for example, secure access for commons and communities, support for state-of-the-art land administration technology, and processes.
- Building and growing a movement for creating awareness of issues, and for nudging action on required actions; for example, supporting research related to informal settlements.
