Description of the project: Community Agriculture and Environmental Protection Association (CAEPA) Cameroon improves the livelihoods of women farmers in the Northwest by introducing new sustainable farming technologies and ensuring their equal access to land ownership. 500 families have been trained in enhancing soil quality, protecting water sources and developing sustainable cropping systems. They were supported to build their own “integrated farm plans”. 40 women’s groups have acquired skills to identify adapted tree species for reforestation; they planted 85,000 trees so far. Conducting research on laws and women’s rights, CAEPA also promotes equal land tenure rights and gender equality among rural communities.
