Bangladesh is a low altitude country situated at the Bengal river delta, sharing a border with India and Myanmar. There are mountains in peripheral areas, such as the Chittagong Hill Tracts in the southeast. It is in the top ten most populated countries in the world, with a population of 163 million. Covering 147,570 km2, this gives a density of over 1,100 people per km2, by far the highest figure for populous lands. It is also one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, highly vulnerable to climate-related events.

Cameroon has an abundance of natural resources, and forests in particular. Despite rapid urbanization, more than two thirds of the population still depend on agriculture. After independence in 1960 and reunification in 1961, cotton, coffee, and oil revenues boosted Cameroon’s economy initially. However, when the world market prices of the key cash crops dropped in the late 1980s, the country’s currency was    devalued.

Climate change can destabilize existing land and resource governance institutions and associated property rights across the spectrum of landscape types. Transformed climatic conditions, manifested in either rapid-onset or slow-onset ways, can change how land and natural resources are accessed and used as geographical shifts in resource productivity, resource scarcity, and therefore land use patterns occur.

Land and SDGs

UN member States endorsed the 2030 Agenda and committed to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a set of 17 Global Goals, in a 15-year period. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development contains land-related targets and indicators under SDGs 1, 2, 5, 11 and 15.  Many land organizations and stakeholders are committed to fully implementing the SDGs and to monitoring the land-related indicators in order to promote responsible land governance.  Land is a significant resource, both cross-cutting and critical to achieving the SDGs.
