Abstract

Tenure security for informal settlers remains a challenge in developing countries since these settlements grow rapidly due to the rural - urban migration with cities being the focal points for economic growth, innovation, and employment. The main objective of this study was to analyse the impact of STDM in tenure security to facilitate sustainable development. Little is known on whether the use of pro-poor tools in land registration actually improves the lives of those for whom the tools are aimed at. In response, this research seeks to find out if the use of the Global Land Tool Network‘s Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) software reduces the threats of eviction for settlers; enhances their ability to leave, rent, and invest in land; and improves the housing stock and surrounding infrastructure. Looking at the variables used in measuring the indicators for the sub-objectives, majority exhibit high
confidence in tenure security and there is a general reduction in the threats.
