Challenges faced by young Cameroonians with regards to land acquisition in the country are at the Centre of discussions at a two day forum which began today December 6, at the National Assembly.

The two day event that has brought together the government, parliament and other land management executioners is organized by the parliamentary network for the sustainable management of forest eco systems in central Africa, coordinated by Honorable Jean Jacques Zang.

Among the key actors taking part in the forum on the access to land for youth are traditional rulers as custodians of the lands they have inherited.

The traditional rulers are very often at the forefront of the conflicts that emerge as a result of competition for land use between different groups.
