Abstract
Land, according to most governments, is an important asset in development. All over the world, it expresses family cohesion to a certain extent, and presents itself as a basis for the development of any human project. Thus, the regulation of its use and occupation is required. In Cameroonian legislation, the land system is using a special book called "land Book". This book represents a document used by a registrar to record users ‘land titles, in order to prove the authenticity, availability, and confidentiality of its holder. To date, its land system still suffers from several problems, in particular: the dilapidated state and disappearance of land books, the existence of several geodetic systems, disappearance of leaflet, sale of false land titles, double sales of land titles, and attempts to expropriate a person or a community by the administration or by third parties. Today, most of the cases pending in the courts are land disputes, and since then they have continued to increase due to demographic pressure, and the rate of urbanization in Cameroon. The objective of this paper is to solve these problems by designing a Framework via a particular type of blockchain approach in order to improve the security and scalability of the land register in Cameroon.
