Structural Adjustment and sustainable development in Cameroon: A World Wide Fund for Nature study

Working papers

Working papers

The aim of this report is to improve our understanding of the ways in which economic policies can affect people's behaviour towards the natural environment. It documents the principal economic adjustment measures taken in Cameroon since the late 1980s and traces their potential environmental impact in the agricultural and forestry sectors by presenting case studies - of four contrasting but representative regions of the country - North-West, Far North, East and South Provinces. In the final, forward-looking section implications are drawn and recommendations made for the pursuit of sustainable development in agriculture and forestry.
