Land access in vital to generate income to move out of poverty, to produce food in order to address food security concern. Land is also a factor of social exclusion or inclusion and an economic growth driver. In Cameroon, land as an asset, an input or an income source is not equally possessed by any individual or household with respect to gender and place of living. This is the result of some cultural norms and behavior that as in many countries are gender related and extend beyond biological differences. They are namely; the family role of men and women, their social responsibility, their allocation of work time and risk management, their right and access to reproductive resource such as land. In this view, land tenure are more secured for men than for women in Cameroon. The aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between land access and household welling in Cameroon. The main research question of this study is: What is the effect of land access on household’s welling in Cameroon?
