|Town/Region||Banyang-Mbo Wildlife Sanctuary|
|Date||9 Jul 2015|
This is to implement the outcomes of the first project funded in 2007.
As per the background, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) working with Nature Cameroon, other partners and the local communities have identified the following as major threats to the long term sustainable management of the sanctuary.
The project intends to increase/improve on the capacity and skills of stakeholders (especially community users groups, exploiters, local administration, elected councillors/members of parliament and traditional authorities) on sustainable exploitation and management of natural resources (particularly timber, NTFP and wildlife including bush meat).
It also intends to building capacities of all stakeholders in policy development and implementation, especially skills and techniques in sustainable resource management and exploitation. And finally, it will enhance transparency in resource revenue management by increasing participation of stakeholders in decision making on revenue allocation from natural resources (forest, timber & NTFPs, and wildlife –Bush meat) through information sharing and awareness education. In this way the local Inhabitants will no longer see themselves as passive stakeholders but exercise active participation as expected in the 1994 Forestry Law.
