Community Hunting Zones: First Steps in the Decentralisation of Wildlife Management. Observations from the Village of Djaposten, Cameroon

Research reports

This short paper recounts the experiences of the village of Djaposten in East Cameroon in trying to establish a Community Hunting Zone that realistically reflects its existing hunting territory and fits in with current legislation. The case raises several fundamental questions about how to cope with an inappropriate legal framework and the difficulties of achieving communal management of a moving resource.
