    TECHINICAL SUPPORT PROJECT ,FOR THE IMPROVEMENT AND RESPECT OF THE RIGHTS AND DIGNITY OF THE INDIGINOUS PEOPLE OF CAMEROON.
    BACKGROUND
    Most of the world’s ecosystems and areas rich in biodiversity are home to local communities and indigenous peoples whose livelihoods and cultures depend wholly on them. Ensuring an integrated livelihoods and conservation nexus is of utmost importance to our priorities for environmental social safeguards, social development therefor has a central role in our agenda ranging from gender, human rights and indigenous people.
    In line with our commitment to strengthen the social dimension of our projects, our social principles are fundamental to creating, effective, lasting and equitable solutions to today’s environmental and social challenges.
    Most indigenous communities living in Cameroon are historically marginalised as their communities’ faces several challenges in an ever-changing Cameroon.
    Cameroon can boast of extraordinary natural capital, admired and envied by many. However, this capital remains rapid, large –scale and in most cases, irreversible transformations, thus adversely affecting the ecological footprint. Infrastructure development and increase trade are changes pregnant with promises of greater prosperity for all.
    Poverty is a major constraint to building and nurturing sustainable relationships as the poor inevitably become both the victims and willing agents of ecosystem degradation and biodiversity. Sustainable poverty reduction and economic growth in Cameroon rely on conserving the country’s rich biodiversity and sustainable management of her natural resources on which many and enterprises depend.

    The project is aimed at providing technical support to indigenous people and their communities in achieving the sustainable development goals.
    WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
