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
