Cameroon : Indicators

2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Land Ownership and Forest Use Maps

The generic maps produced by the National Institute of Cartography serve as a base for more specific maps on forests. These maps are not up to date, whereas the Forest Atlas is updated yearly. Systematic mapping of small titles remains non-existent.

Some forest use maps are made by the State (the National Institute of Cartography) and international partner NGOs (for example, World Resources Institute). The NGOs which produce forest use maps are more professional than the Ministry of Forests and Wildlife staff. However, it is worrying that such a sensitive task is totally controlled by foreign institutions, and capacity building is urgently required in this area so that the task can be transferred.

Maps are often distributed to local NGOs. However, small operation titles, such as Timber Recovery Authorisations (TRAs) and Timber Recovery Permits (TRPs), are still excluded from the mapping system.
