In June 2015 GREG-Forêts organised a workshop with members of the network of parliamentarians REPAR-Cameroon, and representatives of other key ministries, to reflect on the results of a study carried out to evaluate the impacts of agro-industrial and logging activities on great ape conservation and poverty in Cameroon. Presentations of the results of the study (see below) were followed by discussions in plenary. The goal was to propose concrete recommendations for policy makers to improve great ape conservation and livelihoods in areas were agro-industrial and logging activities are carried out in Cameroon. This workshop report outlines the workshop’s proceedings.
