Green Cameroon was founded in 2003 with a mission to Conserve Cameroon’s rich biodiversity by working on practical solutions to solve conservation problems. Green Cameroon pays close attention to sustainable development, rural community livelihood and contemporary environmental issues. Green Cameroon was formed with a strong commitment to fighting environmental problems in Cameroon's communities like deforestation, desertification, unsustainable farming practices, improper waste disposal, water scarcity, health problems linked to sanitation.
Green Cameroon’s programs include;
- Providing environmental education on global and regional issues affecting Africa as well as environmental protection
- Increasing the ability of local populations to benefit and contribute to natural resource management and conservation
- Promoting new and traditional approaches to increasing food production without losing on-farm biodiversity
- Focusing on activities that conserve and protect the local environment and helping to alleviate poverty for communities
