Webinar series on geospatial technologies for land recordation

This series of short and informative webinars features geospatial solutions to record tenure rights.

Technology providers present their software solutions for land recordation and give examples how they are applied in practice. Each webinar is 30 minutes.

The webinar series is being organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The series started in June 2021 and featured the following approaches:

  • SOLA & Open tenure toolkit from FAO
  • The Community Land Value Chain (CaVaTeCo) approach from Terra Firma
  • Cadasta
  • Mobile Applications to Secure Tenure (MAST)

Recordings and presentations of previous webinars can be found on IFAD’s website.

Next webinar: Social Tenure Domain Model

The next webinar will take place on September 9 from 11:30-12:00 CET. It will feature the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM), a pro-poor, participatory and affordable land information tool to represent people-to-land relationships along the ‘continuum of land rights’ frameworks.

This webinar will present the three key elements of STDM and showcase how it is implemented in different countries. Register for the webinar here.

Training programme

The webinar series accompanies the online learning programme “Geospatial Technology and Participatory Methods for Securing Tenure Rights (GeoTech4Tenure)”. The course supports IFAD and FAO programmes and partners in finding solutions to secure tenure rights through the combined application of participatory methods and geomatics technology.

The pilot edition of this programme ran in the first half of 2021. Further editions are planned. Subscribe to the land tenure emailing list to be informed about next editions.
