Cameroon 2016

The Centre for Nursery Development and Eru Propagation (CENDEP) joins the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action´s initiative to build consensus and advocacy capacity on solutions to global environmental problems.

Lack of power, poverty, and gender discrimination are some of the problems women face around the world.

At the Bihkov Training Centre in Mbiame, CENDEP organized a workshop with the support of BothENDS and the International Analog Forestry Network (IAFN) as part of a series of activities to pursue the common goal in the ecological restoration of degraded areas and to support local communities, in particular through Analog Forestry (AF).

Discussions were held to clarify the difficulties faced by women smallholder farmers in accessing land for their production activities, identify changes needed to improve tenure security and determine the most relevant “power holders” for local, regional and national level advocacy actions.

Participants came together from universities, the regional agricultural training institute, local council and representatives of 14 farming groups across Jakiri and Mbven subdivision of Bui Division in Cameroon.
