Financial and economic values of bushmeat in rural and urban livelihoods in Cameroon: Inputs to the development of public policy

At symposium: Consumptive uses of wildlife in sub saharan africa: the janus bifrons syndrome

Traditional wildlife hunting has been described mainly from studies of local practices and from the monitoring of urban bushmeat markets. However, the overall value chain connecting hunters to end consumers remains largely unknown, thus preventing any estimate of theactual socio-economic importance of the bushmeat sector. On the basis of existing literature, this paper provides an order of magnitude for the financial and economic benefits of the bushmeat commodity chain in Cameroon.
