Reshaping the terrain: Forest and landscape restoration in Cameroon

Reshaping the terrain: Forest and landscape restoration in Cameroon

Forest Landscape Restoration is provided for in Cameroon’s Forest Law of 1999. It identifies reforestation and artificial regeneration as some of the operations that must be conducted in the permanent forest estate and recognizes individual and group efforts in establishing forests. The implementation of this law is monitored by the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife (MINFOF) while the National Forestry Development Agency (ANAFOR), which was created in 2002, is mandated with implementing the law and in particular to support the development of a national private and community forest plantations program. In 2006 the government set a target of planting at least 1 million seedlings a year and to provide required funding to councils, communities and associations for this reforestation campaign.
