CENDEP is a grassroots organization created in 1999 with the goal of training local people in the domestication, sustainable production and marketing of non timber as well as agricultural products for their livelihood sustenance using as production guidelines the Analog Forestry methodology.

OUR MISSION

“To promote livelihoods and conservation through dialogue, participatory education, training and research”

Local people have the capacity and play a central role in creating and maintaining resilient ecosystems as well as fostering policies that promote their rights to water, food security and a clean, healthy and safe environment

OUR ACTIVITIES

DOMESTICATION

Wild stocks of a number of non timber forest products (NTFPs) of economic, cultural and medicinal importance in Cameroon are currently threatened due to unsustainable and over exploitation in response to national and international market demands, poverty, ignorance and agricultural expansion.

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

Jatropha curcas is a valuable non-edible multi purpose crop which grows on barren land, easy to propagate, has very little water requirements, grows relatively quickly, and reduces soil degradation. It is commonly used as a boundary marker in Cameroon. ​

ANALOGUE FORESTRY

The Northwest Region of Cameroon with over 70% of its population engaged in peasant agriculture has over the years experienced severe land and watershed degradation resulting from unsustainable farming practices. CENDEP is a member of IAFN
