2021 Land Tenure Week
From the 25th to the 29th of January 2021, LandCam and the Ministry of State Property, Surveys and Land Tenure (MINDCAF) organised the land tenure Week in Yaoundé. A moment for stakeholders involved in land management to debate on proposals for a better land management and improve the flow of information.
Under the theme "Local land management: challenges and lessons", the opening ceremony was chaired by the Minister of State Property, Surveys and Land Tenure, and more than 150 participants attended severals workshops. Four other Ministers also attended the ceremony and one could note their strong words on the need to recognise the rights of communities, giving a positive step towards improving land governance in Cameroon.
The land tenure week made it possible to organise multi-stakeholders dialogue sessions to propose solutions for improving land governance. In addition, participants welcomed the opportunity to exchange on the challenges and lessons of land management in Cameroon. They equally appreciated the proposals emerging from the various exchange sessions. They hope that these will be taken into account when finalising the land tenure reform. A final communiqué is being drafted for this purpose, summarising the key points and proposals to be taken into account in the ongoing land reform.
Below are some pictures of the week.
