New Project – Further development of a common mapping platform and methodology for local land use planning in Cameroon

Deforestation in Cameroon is on the rise – largely driven by expansion of agro-industry, slash and burn agriculture, logging, fuelwood demands, mining and infrastructure development. Competition for productive land in Cameroon has increased, notably with foreign companies seeking large tracts of land (10,000 hectares and above) for agricultural development.

The EFI Common Mapping Platform (CMP) plays a central role in building commitment to a bottom up, participatory approach that brings together multiple stakeholders to foster a common understanding and agreement on land uses, institutions (rules) for future land management and activities necessary to achieve sustainable land management.
