  • Opportunities and Constraints in Agriculture: A gendered analysis of cocoa production in Southern Cameroon

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 January 2009
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    Cocoa is one of Cameroon’s most important agricultural commodities and exported cash crops, and women are particularly active in the sector. In order to gather more gender sensitive information, GTZ conducted a survey among 1000 Cameroonian male and female producers. The aim of the survey was to determine the extent and consequences of gender inequality in this key agricultural sector, with the rationale that gender inequalities in the agricultural sector hamper potential economic growth in a country where agriculture is so crucial for the economy.

  • Comparative assessment of forest revenue redistribution mechanisms in Cameroon

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 January 2015
    Objective: 

    This paper draws on a legal review and field data to assess the distribution of forest and wildlife revenues from economic operations in logging and wildlife extraction to forest communities in Cameroon. It has an emphasis on the socio-distributional aspects, and draws lessons for the future design and implementation of REDD+ benefit sharing.

  • Climate and food production: understanding vulnerability from past trends in Africa’s Sudan-Sahel

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2013
    Objective: 

    This case study from Cameroon’s Sudan-Sahel region explores the impact of rainfall on agricultural production and the evidence that supports small-scale farming as a strategy to reduce the vulnerability of crop yields to rainfall variation in the region. Climate data for 20 years and crop production data for six major food crops for the same years are used to identify patterns of correlation. The analysis reveals that the influence of rainfall on agriculture can be diluted by proactive policies that support food production.

  • Local vulnerability, Forest communities and Forestcarbon conservation: case of southern Cameroon

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 June 2013
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This research paper, published in the international Journal of Biodiversity and Conservation, reports on a study of two community forests', Nomedjoh and Nkolenyeng, Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) projects located in south Cameroon. Focus group sessions and household surveys were conducted to examine the relationship between the adaptation of forest communities and the mitigation of forest-carbon conservation, and the impact this has on local vulnerability.

  • Targeting Agricultural Research and Extension for Food Security and Poverty Alleviation: A Case Study of Fish Farming in Central Cameroon

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday 17 August 2011
    Objective: 

    This study compares over five years of participatory on-farm research, market access, profitability, farming systems productivity and economic sustainability on 100 small-scale farms in Central Cameroon. It concludes that to achieve either food security or poverty alleviation, investments need to be made in improving the availability of quality technical assistance to targeted farmers and finding means of reducing social conflict arising from perceived inequalities in the accrual of the benefits of development.
