The Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) is a pro-poor, gender responsive and participatory land information system. It has been developed to bridge the gap between formally registered land and land that is not registered.
STDM implementation is embedded in other GLTN land tools that support countries to introduce innovations which strengthen tenure security for the majority of people, especially the poor. It operationalizes the Continuum of Land Rights concept, enlists inclusive approaches advocated in participatory enumeration, and highlights the gender status of land relations.
