Product Description

This forest has an area of 4 200 ha and stretches for 17 km in Cameroon’s South West District. It is a medium-altitude closed moist forest that has never been industrially harvested until now. This community forest belonging to the communities of Ngola and Achip villages is managed by a village development committee, the Balagbo, Pa’a, Bamouh Bankoho, Baka and Bodja Family Association. The stakeholders are the forest administration, local NGOs, young loggers, the Fets Federation and the people of the villages. It is estimated that there are 1 430 beneficiaries of forest management. The management objectives assigned to this community forest are the small-scale production and processing of timber, the production of NWFPs, implementation of joint microprojects, and ecotourism. The first steps in preparing a simple management plan were taken in November 1998 with the technical support of the SDDL/SNV Project as a pilot experiment to develop a management model for community forests in Cameroon. The plan lists the activities to be carried out in the forest during the first five years of self-management. An inventory of timber resources and various socio-economic surveys were carried out. Zoning of the community forest was established, with its division into three sectors (two primary forest sectors and one residential and agricultural sector). Demarcation of the zone was carried out. Rotation length was fixed at 24 years and annual potential in terms of area at 175 ha and in terms of volume at 1 000 m3 of lumber. The simple management plan was approved, the management agreement signed, and the 2001–2002 annual report and 2001–2002 annual harvesting plan approved. Notification of the start of operations was signed, and harvesting and marketing activities carried out despite many difficulties with regard to the manner of harvesting. Activity reports have been produced, but the definitive management plan is still in course of preparation in close collaboration.
