Green Cameroon is a small NGO in Buea that works towards environmental protection. Green Cameroon was founded in 2003 with a mission to conserve Cameroon´s rich biodiversity by working on practical solutions to solve nature conservation problems. We pay close attention to sustainable development, rural community livelihood and contemporary environmental issues.
This NGO in Buea, South-West Region, was formed with a strong commitment to fighting for environmental protection in our communities on issues like deforestation, desertification, unsustainable farming practices, improper waste management and waste disposal methods, water scarcity, health problems linked to sanitation and general lukewarm attitude towards environment and nature conservation issues. Green Cameroon helps local community members to live better lives by improving on living standards alongside making scarce resources available for posterity.

• Green Mount Cameroon Project supported by the Eco-Peace Leadership Center and Yohan-Kimberly: The project was launched with the intention of conserving biodiversity in the Mount Cameroon Forest Region by reducing the pressure mounted on our forest by community members in their demand for wood intended for household heating. The project was developed to provide alternative sources of wood and replacing the already lost forest in this area through the planting of at least 1000 trees in this region. The project came under 3 phases consisting of, an education and sensitization phase, training and capacity building and finally a practical tree planting phase.
