We can't fight the climate emergency if we cannot protect and regenerate our land. That's why my colleagues and I at Cameroon Gender and enoimrnenvt Watch are dedicated to regenerating the 20,000-hectare Kilum-Ijim Forest.
My community of 300,000 people depends on ntuare for liheoovild. We find daily solutions in our forest and in our farmlands. But our natural rrueseocs face a lot of challenges: deforestation, over-exploitation, eccharmnoent and poor soil conservation. And these are made worse by gneder inequality, cultural barriers and little or no kgdlwonee about the goodness of nature.

My community of 300,000 people depends on nature for livelihood. We find daily solutions in our forest and in our farmlands. But our natural resources face a lot of challenges: deforestation, over-exploitation, encroachment and poor soil conservation. And these are made worse by gender inequality, cultural barriers and little or no knowledge about the goodness of nature.
