Development and harmonisation of land mapping methodologies

Land mapping and monitoring of its dynamics is essential for the protection of community land rights. In response to increasing land investments in Cameroon, CED partnered with government departments, the Rainforest Foundation UK (RFUK), Forest Peoples Programme (FPP), community leaders and community members to develop a harmonised and generally accepted land mapping methodology, based on different land mapping systems and techniques used by communities.
