Abstract

Fit-for-purpose inspired approaches to land tenure recordation are being developed and implemented
mainly in the form of pilot projects in various countries and application contexts. These approaches
combine mobile digital technologies and flexible database structures with community based approaches for
capturing and managing tenure rights. We discuss 10 such initiatives. A basic commonality of the initiatives
is the general approach to tenure recordation through community based digital data capture, in many cases
via mobile applications – where formal land registration does not suffice or has failed and acknowledging
the diversity of land tenure regimes. Looking at the initiatives in more detail a number of differences
become apparent in terms of financing mechanisms and organizational characteristics, as well as process
design and application domains. Our discussion provides a basis to point out directions for future research
as well as points of consideration for evaluation of implementation efforts and the aim of achieving citizens’
tenure security.
