Cameroon

Le pays Bamum est un territoire de la région de l’Ouest Cameroun  fondé au XIVe siècle par le roi Nchare. C’est un royaume où le Sultan est le dépositaire des terres. Les allochtones acquièrent le plus souvent  des  terres auprès des autochtones pour exploitation. Les autochtones n’ont qu’un droit d’usufruitsur les terre qui leurs sont cédées, mais aucun droit de disposer sur celles-ci. Ainsi, les tentatives d’immatriculation de ces terrains se heurtent très souvent au véto des autochtones du fait qu’ils n’ont pas le droit de sécuriser les terres dans un territoire étranger.

Land regularization is an essential ingredient in the formalization on land rights and it plays an important role in improving tenure security of the urban poor. In order to facilitate the process of land regularization, there is need to have up to date spatial information on the settlements earmarked for the regularization process. Ground based survey methods have proved to be time consuming and costly. Thus there is need to adopt cost effective methodology in the acquisition of spatial data.

The Absorption of rural Landscape by the process of urbanization is a critical issue leading to several, economic and environmental complications. Urbanization drives land use and land cover change (zoya et al., 2016), and, since the First Industrial Revolution (from about 1760 to 1840), has been characterised by the growth of urban population and spatial extension of cities. With the beginning of the twenty-first century, urbanization has gone hand in hand with development in emerging countries often leading to massive rural exodus.
