    Cameroon

    African land tenure problems, just like those of the African family, are exceedingly complex and baffling. With its ethnic diversity, Cameroon is an inextricable tangle of different concepts of title to land. Yet, except in the overpopulated areas and some times in the towns, the tensions stemming from land tenure problems were practically unknown in Cameroon until about thirty years ago. Owing to economic development and particularly the overpopulation of certain sectors, and the development of the towns, the government was forced to intervene in land tenure questions.

This definition seems to deal only with the topographical aspect of the system, in other words, the demarcation of a group of parcels, with their area, their boundaries and the name of the owner. In Madagascar, in addition to this demarcation, the owner must establish his title by an official instrument.

    Chad, Africa

    As in many of the States of Equatorial-Africa, Chad's system of public

    and private land tenure is based on the French decree of 28 March 1699 and on the subsequent modifying texts. This system has not been very successful and Africans have proudly clung on to their respective "concessions", because they enjoyed a material hold over the land (habitation, farming, grazing, fishing m -certain water courses), until i960 and beyond.
