Project Summary:
Working with Baka women in 10 villages in southeastern Cameroon, we will implement a family-based self-help model to improve agricultural production and nutrition. As conditionality we will provide medical help and incentivise the no-take of protected species, thereby delivering practical benefits to conservation and development in these marginalised rural communities. Food security and health improved in Baka settlements (around 2,000 inhabitants) in southeastern Cameroon, through the sustainable use of wildlife resources, and implementation of environmentally-friendly agricultural systems. We will focus on 10 representative villages during the project to roll out lessons learnt to the others in the region.
