La décision du gouvernement camerounais de réformer le cadre juridique du foncier est une opportunité d’assurer une réelle protection des droits fonciers ruraux, dans un contexte où les investissements et les projets à grande échelle augmentent l’insécurité foncière à travers le pays. En réponse à une invitation de l’administration à contribuer à la conception de ce nouveau cadre législatif, les acteurs de la société civile ont énoncé ces dernières années de nombreuses propositions sur les sujets à intégrer dans la nouvelle législation foncière.

Project
Geographical focus: 

The project aims to (i) strengthen capacities of key stakeholders in establishing recognition of claims to land access and to (ii) establish legitimate and sustainable mechanisms of multi-stakeholder consultation for decision-making concerning the revision of legal frameworks, policy strategies and administrative regulations which influence the rights of access to and use of land and natural resources for rural actors in Cameroon
