160318 OECS web1 Page 01Land administration is defined as the acquisition, maintenance and dissemination of information on the ownership, value and use of land. This information is necessary to support land policy implementation. Besides being complete and current, land administration systems – including the information contained within the systems and the processes used for their establishment and maintenance - should ideally be transparent, accessible, simple and low-cost to efficiently and effectively allocate land fairly to citizens.

The Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) software is a pro-poor tool for land administration. It may be used to record the interests of people who occupy and use land but who do not have formal freehold title and who would therefore be left out of conventional land information systems. The STDM has been designed to record these interests simply, quickly and cheaply in a digital database, which therefore increases the flexibility, accessibility and usefulness of the data. This report documents the experiences of piloting the STDM in Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
