Cameroon is a resource rich country and natural resources plays a key role in its development. They form the basis of economic activities and livelihoods, especially among the poorest.
The sustainable management of natural resources is thus a key concern for Cameroon’s sustainable development, as exemplified by the Cameroon’s Version 2035. The strategy emphasizes a transition to green growth as one of its two main objectives.
However, Climate Change (CC) poses a severe threat to the underprivileged and the rural masses, by reducing their access to food, energy, and water. Communities, relying on natural resources are the worst hit and often fall victims even to a slight change in weather.
