Marketing of non-wood forest products in the humid forest zone of Cameroon

The Central African tropical humid forest covers 280 million ha and is the largest of its kind in the world after the Amazon (Talbott, 1993; FAO, 1995). Within this region, the 26 million ha of the Cameroon’s humid forest zone (HFZ) contain some of Africa’s most diverse ecosystems. (Alpert, 1993) and have provided a large number of non-wood (plant and animal) forest products (NWFPs) to the local populations (Koppert et al., 1993; Doucet and Koufani, 1997; Ngala, 1997).
