Omidyar Network and Ashoka’s Changemakers recently hosted an online competition, “Property Rights: Identity, Dignity & Opportunity for All” to unleash opportunity for individuals and communities worldwide working on this issue as well as bring together stakeholders and solutions for millions. 19 semi-finalists from 9 countries have been selected for their efforts to improve the lives of the poor and transform communities through secure rights to land.

This challenge drew a total of 211 of entries from 47 different countries, nonetheless, the 19 semi-finalists demonstrate innovative approaches that help to provide land to the landless, formalize and document property rights for individuals or communities who lack established rights, or work on legal education to help people understand and benefit from the laws that protect these assets.

Until January 12, 2011, the Changemakers online community will Vote for their preferred semi-finalists to help them emerge as finalists. The finalists will then be evaluated by a distinguished panel of judges to arrive at the three winning solutions.
