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. http://www.mindaf.gov.cm/

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. http://www.spm.gov.cm/actualites/actualite/article/communique-a-lissue-du-conseil-de-cabinet-du-jeudi-28-mars-2013.html
