Exploring the Social Tenure Domain Model
The way land is accessed, used, planned, transacted, and developed has a great impact on sustainable development and the overall implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With land administration being defined as the process of recording and disseminating information about the ownership, value and use of land and its associated resource, customary and informal tenure are often left out of conventional land administration systems.
The Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) is in this regard a solution to compliment conventional approaches in land administration and is supported by the Global Land Tool Network and UN-HABITAT.
To provide a comprehensive understanding of the evolution and significance of STDM a workshop took place on 5 October 2023 in Enschede, the Netherlands. The workshop was organised by Kadaster International and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente.
