Social Tenure Domain Model(STDM)

The Social Tenure Domain Model(STDM) is a pro-poor, gender responsive and participatory land information system developed by the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN).
STDM has been developed to bridge the gap between formally registered land and land that is not registered.

As a concept

There is a gap in the conventional land administration systems such that customary and informal tenure cannot be easily handled. There is a need for complimentary approaches in land administration.

The concept of the Social Tenure Domain Model is to bridge this gap by providing a standard for representing ‘people – land’ relationships independent of the level of formality, legality and technical accuracy.

As a model

The STDM is a ‘specialization’ of the ISO-approved Land Administration Domain Model (LADM). LADM development took place in parallel of STDM development as a concept and a model, and that the core developers of both models are the same or supportive of each other.
Any form of right, responsibility or restriction in a formal system is considered as a social tenure relationship in STDM.

Any form of right, responsibility or restriction in a formal system is considered as a social tenure relationship in STDM.

As an information tool

The need for efficient land rights’ recordation tools and use of ICT has become a necessity and increasingly becoming more available in recent times. The STDM information tool provides the front-end interface for testing and applying the STDM concept and model.

Building from the STDM prototype version and in adherence to GLTN core values, UN-Habitat/GLTN together with its implementing partners, have supported the continuous development of the information tool in a variety of application areas ranging from informal settlement upgrading to natural resource management.
