Data Location


The Ministry of Domains, Cadaster and Land affairs doesn't have a working website. Land ownership is Cameroon has been so far a very serious problem due to ill management, generating resentment between citizens, loss of confidence in land titles, various losses to land owners. A research report from African Development Bank noticed that anyone need a 2 to 7 years period to acquire a land title in Cameroon. The Ministry website is not working at the time of this survey.

So there is project going on launched (PAMOCCA) with ADB support to streamline the process for land ownership, computerizing existing documents, building a unique geodesical database, publishing cadaster data online, etc.
