    Cameroon

    Le pays Bamum est un territoire de la région de l’Ouest Cameroun  fondé au XIVe siècle par le roi Nchare. C’est un royaume où le Sultan est le dépositaire des terres. Les allochtones acquièrent le plus souvent  des  terres auprès des autochtones pour exploitation. Les autochtones n’ont qu’un droit d’usufruitsur les terre qui leurs sont cédées, mais aucun droit de disposer sur celles-ci. Ainsi, les tentatives d’immatriculation de ces terrains se heurtent très souvent au véto des autochtones du fait qu’ils n’ont pas le droit de sécuriser les terres dans un territoire étranger.
