Find Forestry expertise in Cameroon
Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contribute 21% of Cameroon’s GDP (2008). Cameroon’s National Forestry Development Agency (ANAFOR) estimates that forestry’s contribution is about half of this. The forestry sector provides a rich source of employment, employing more than 30,000 people. Forests form 46% of the country’s total land area (2005). They are however disappearing at rate of 0.9% per annum (1990-2005). Illegal logging is a major concern. The sector falls within the purview of the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife. ANAFOR is also at the frontline in managing the sector.
