Purpose: Working alongside law enforcement efforts, we will empower local communities to play an increased, critical role in natural resource management of the Dja landscape, Cameroon, and enable them to generate alternative protein sources and income, incentivising behavioural change, and delivering practical benefits to conservation and development in poor rural communities. Rural-living people in 22 northern-Dja communities generate protein and income through non-hunting means, contributing to food security and poverty alleviation, enabling less hunting and leading to protection of threatened biodiversity.
