The Social Tenure Domain Model offers practical solutions and opportunities for land professionals, researchers, grassroots organisations and government authorities. These opportunities include the empowerment of the grassroots communities to develop and manage their own information systems (and their own data), with all the benefits of the advanced technologies can offer, with less investment in resources and with less reliance on highly paid experts. Land professionals can also make their services available to all and offer people-centred and affordable solutions. They can also contribute to the further enhancement of the STDM framework. With STDM, it is possible to bridge the information divide, to serve all members of society and to undertake development interventions such as tenure security for all at scale.
