Since the commencement of land registration in Nigeria, less than 3% of land, mainly in urban areas had been registered. This is partly due to the prevalent sporadic method. Sporadic procedure of obtaining title is associated with many problems which include time and cost. This study examined space-enhanced systematic land titling and registration (SLTR) approach in Ondo State, Nigeria towards easing the titling logjam in the State. Questionnaire and Oral interview were used to elicit information from landowners and heads of departments of two government agencies.

Les agrumes représentent la première culture irriguée dans la plaine de Trifa (Berkane, Maroc) avec une superficie en extension continue. Ceci accentue les pressions sur les ressources en eau déjà limitées dans la région. De ce fait, une gouvernance efficace et rationnelle de l’eau agricole s’impose. Dans ce travail, nous proposons une approche basée sur les observations satellitaires pour appuyer la gestion de l’eau d’irrigation consommée par les surfaces agrumicoles.

Climate change issues are contemporary global phenomena which affect the largest part of the world in different ways. This paper explores how local communities living in sensitive ecological areas, particularly in river valleys, respond to and adapt to climate change. By employing a qualitative research approach, findings have indicated that heavy rainfall and prolonged droughts coupled with population increase have led to land use changes and loss of biodiversity in the river valley.

Comme tout domaine vital, le domaine d’administration du foncier est un univers de discours peuplé par des termes et des concepts dont le sens et la sémantique forment un système de connaissances. L’organisation de ces connaissances est un préalable à la gestion des données foncières et accessible grâce aux technologies du web sémantique.

Situé en plein cœur de la forêt équatoriale dans le bassin du Congo, la région du Sud-ouest est sans doute l’une des plus riches du Cameroun. Elle comporte une biodiversité des plus diversifiées avec une importance significative des espèces endogènes ainsi que des espèces commerciales. Les conditions pédologiques, hydrographiques et orographiques sont favorables à l’agriculture, ce qui a amené les allemands dès leurs arrivées au Cameroun à s’y implanter.

The aim of this paper is to highlight the determinants of women land access in Cameron and appreciate its effects on wellbeing trough income and consumption. We use the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to capture land access determinants and a Simultaneous Equations Model (SEM) to put on evidence the implications on wellbeing in Cameroon.

The livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people, particularly the rural poor, are based on secure and equitable access to and control over land and natural resources which are in turn the source of food and shelter, the basis for social, cultural and religious practices, and a central factor in economic growth.

Land and natural resource tenure security is a central yet often neglected area for economic development and poverty reduction in the developing world. Land is fundamental to the lives of poor rural people. It is a source of food, shelter, income and social identity. Secure access to land reduces vulnerability to hunger and poverty. There are some 1.3 billion extremely poor people in the world, struggling to survive on less than US$1.25 a day, and close to a billion continue to suffer from chronic under-nourishment.

Les femmes de la région de l’Extrême-Nord du Cameroun font face à un environnement sociologique qui limite leur accès au foncier : mariage, illettrisme et ignorance des dispositions règlementaires, complexité et coût des procédures de sécurisation foncière, facteurs financiers... Par ailleurs, l’accès des femmes au foncier est accompagné des perceptions locales à la fois positives et négatives, mais qui reste fortement influencées par la coutume et les règles traditionnelles.
