Enhancing women’s leadership for community development

Cameroon’s Model Forests actively promote the organization and leadership of rural women. In recent years, more than 90 micro-projects focusing on business development, marketing and product development were financed through the Model Forests. Some local products such as Allanblankia oil, used in manufacturing food and non-food products, have been able to access international markets. Generating social and economic value from natural resources has also improved conservation efforts.
