Land Reform in Cameroon: Common Position Paper of Civil Society Organizations

The regulation of land tenure in Cameroon is characterized by several flaws, which render it generally obsolete and unresponsive to the needs of various vulnerable groups such as women, small farmers, and indigenous peoples.These flaws are also largely responsible for the outbreak in land related conflicts, resulting from pressure from international and local large scale investors, and speculators who are taking advantage of the state of the land governance framework to “grab” large expanses of arable land: to the detriment of poor rural communities and other vulnerable groups.

This edition of Position Paper, reviews and consolidates the various proposals made by civil society organizations, which have been submitted so far to the attention of the Ministry of State Property, Surveys and Land Tenure.
