Forestry
Many communities in Cameroon have seen that their natural forests are getting smaller and some have even disappeared completely. This is mostly due to human activities such as farming, grazing and bush burning. When the forest disappears all the different plants and animals in it also disappear, including many useful ones. Springs and streams also dry up when the forest is cleared. The forests also play an important role in the cultures and traditions of many communities.
The Western Highlands of Cameroon are the home to many different plants, animals and birds. To help preserve Cameroons forests FAP is enaged in the following activities:
  • Establishment and management of tree nurseries
  • Encouragement of the creation and management of plantations with communities
  • Encouragement of the creation and management of fuel plantations
  • Encouragement of tree planting in watersheds
  • Encouragement of tree planting in community forests
  • Training of watershed and forest dependant communities on beekeeping and pasture improvement for graziers
  • Provide material support to communities to start activities after training
  • Promote the planting of medicinal plants
  • Tree plantations with communities
