General

This operation seeks to grant additional financing of UA 5 million to the Support Project for Modernization of Land Registration and Improvement of the Business Climate (PAMOCCA) in order to extend its activities to other regions of the country and strengthen the sustainability of outcomes. Indeed, PAMOCCA is a pilot project aimed at supporting the Government to strengthen governance in land registration and management through modernization of land registration in four towns, regional headquarters in the country (Yaounde, Douala, Maroua and Garoua) and to revise the land-related legislative, regulatory and institutional framework. This additional loan which will be disbursed over a period of four years (2014-2017), will be used to extend modernization of land registration to six other towns, which are regional headquarters in the country. The loan will also be used to finance a vast capacity building programme in land registration and management through continuing training, as well as create a specialized stream at the National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM).

Objectives

PAMOCCA objective is to develop Cameroon’s land capital and help consolidate sustainable growth and reduce poverty. Specifically, this project seeks to consolidate and extend the expected outcomes of PAMOCCA which are as follows: (i) improved access to reliable and secured land titles; (ii) higher tax revenue in towns with reliable and computerized land registration services; and (iii) improved business climate.

Target Groups

The project will benefit the tax administration and MINDAF, active urban communities (UCs), and the private sector in terms of capacity building, resource mobilization and improvement of the business climate, as well as the population in terms of security and improvement of the living environment. The Cameroonian population in general will benefit from the impact of the project through activities aimed at improving access to charges on land and information.
