The Forest and Environment project (Pro-FE) of the GIZ in Cameroon is active in the sector of management and sustainable exploitation of natural resources.
The main objective is to improve the sustainable management of forests, protected areas, forest landscapes and biodiversity so that it contributes to sustainable development in rural areas in a context of climate change.
The objective of the Pro-FE is to contribute to the valorization of the environment and forest resources in a sustainable way by local actors.
The target groups are the predominantly poor rural population as well as indigenous and immigrant populations in selected natural areas who use the natural resources of the forests as a means of subsistence and economic basis.
The institutional partners of the project are the Ministry of Forests and Wildlife and the Ministry of Environment, Nature Protection and Sustainable Development.
Emphasis is placed on municipal actors, value chain actors and social dialogue actors.
