Project Summary

The objective of the programme is to support the efforts of the Government of Cameroon in general, and the people of the North West Province in particular, to conserve the forest by: raising widespread awareness of forest values; supporting development of management and control systems for sustainable management of forests (capacity building); and providing communities with the capacity to manage resources sustainably (by demonstrating ways of enhancing forest values, and providing advice on ways of sustainably increasing production from land outside the forests).
