Cameroon

The Cameroon National Land Observatory (NLO) covers all domestic and transnational deals in the country, including agriculture, forestry, mining, ranching, livestock, and the other intentions, after the year 2000. Importantly, all deals from 50 ha are included, rather than the global Land Matrix standard of 200 ha.

Country profiles

Country profiles present national-level data of large-scale land acquisitions and transactions including who the investors are, what the aim of the investment is, who the former owner was and what the land was previously used for, and what the potential benefits and impacts of the land deals are.

By making this information available, the Land Matrix hopes to enhance broad engagement and data exchange, facilitating the continuous improvement of the data. Find out how to get involved here .
