Apportion property on the moon to the nations depending on their size and population, and set up a market exchange so that countries and organizations can buy and sell the property. This availability of property and speculation would spur the expansion and settlement of the moon and outer space! Countries could choose to offer incentives in their territories like the Homestead Act in the early United States' westward expansion.
Simultaneously, the market would allow undeveloped countries to sell their stakes to gain much-needed funds in the short term.
