Abstract

Tenure security enables people to reap the benefits from land without any disturbances. As such, it is the basic element of sustainable economic, social and, environmental development. However, institutional inconsistencies between formal and informal institutions create the tenure insecurity in alienated government lands. The paper hypothesize that these institutional inconsistencies are mainly arise due to the fact that inefficient Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) provided by the surrounding organizational setup. The research investigates the significance of organizational setup in establishing the tenure security. Further, it explores the involvement of spatial data in the organizational issues that contribute to the development of insecurity of tenure. According to the investigation, bulk of the tenure security issues occurred due to the organizational inefficiencies and most of these organizational issues are related with the spatial data. Finally, the research has identified the matters to be dealt with, when institutionalizing a proper SDI within an identified organizational setup to enhance the land tenure security in alienated lands.
