Land and how it is controlled shapes everything from our food security and geopolitics to national identity.
The scramble for control of high value land (and its attributes such as water and mineral wealth), in the face of escalating climate change and urbanisation, underpins much of Africa’s fiercest conflicts and mass migrations.
Dominion is CfA’s attempt to inject data-driven evidence and analysis into public discourse policy-setting across the continent.
Dominion is designed as an umbrella data visualisation portal, powered by the HURUmap stack of geo-data software tools, that aggregates land data so that journalists / researchers / policymakers can use it to explore comparisons, spot trends or find other insights.
Dominion also aggregates the best journalistic stories and/or campaigns that partners create using our data / infographics.
