All these actions must lead to the creation of a multi-use national Digital Land registry with and large-scale digital mapping.Other incentives are deployed like the setting up One-stop-shops at the level of the Ministry's ope- rational managements and decentralized depart- ments for the purpose of reducing land transac- tions; The break-up of the property registries of Yaoundé and Douala into three (03) special pro- perty registries each; the securing of land titles and ownership titles by installing additional secu- rity locks; the registration of public buildings and leases for their security and upgrading; the imple- mentation of joint ownerships.On balance, the Government, through the Ministry of Lands, Survey and State Property, spares no effort to facilitate access to land to any purchaser from then on that the rules in force in this field are respected.
