    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 publication has been prepared as a background paper in view of the UN conference on the human environment that was held in Stockholm in 1972. This background document had contribution from UNESCO, IAEA and WHO. While the demand for land for land increases at a very rapid rate through population growth, technological progress and industrial development, soil resources remain fixed. The maintenance of their productivity is therefore of paramount importance.
