Cameroon PCLG

A TV documentary produced by Cameroon PCLG to increase awareness of the links between great ape conservation, poverty alleviation and private investment in Cameroon. 


The Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) established a national group in the Cameroon in 2013 bringing together conservation and development practitioners to share their experiences and to work together to better inform policy and practice. The group is convened by the Network For Environment and Sustainable Development (NESDA-CA) and is nested within “Greg Forêts”, the Cameroon team of the Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG).

Working towards the broader aims of the PCLG, the group:

  • Convenes regular meetings to share experiences in tackling conservation-poverty issues.
  • Generates and shares information/resources on the linkages between poverty and conservation in Cameroon.
  • Works with a range of forestry stakeholders to promote good policy and practice in conservation and development sectors, particularly in relation to good forest governance and REDD+.
  • Develops the capacity of conservation NGOs to more effectively engage with the policy making process.

The Cameroon PCLG has a particular interest in great ape conservation.

Activities

Great ape conservation and poverty reduction

Cameroon PCLG was one of the beneficiaries of wider support provided to the PCLG by the Arcus Foundation from April 2013 - April 2015.

The following were some of the activities Cameroon PCLG members:

  • Mapped conservation organisations in Cameroon and analysed existing conservation policies.
  • Studied private and public sector development actors and the impact of their activities on conservation and great apes.
  • Organised capacity building workshops for local communities to raise awareness of issues surrounding great apes – human conflict.
