Forest conservation through beekeeping in north west Cameroon
Working with our local partner, Apiculture and Nature Conservation Organisation (ANCO) we are supporting the Nkor community to develop sustainable beekeeping as a forest-friendly addition to their livelihoods.
The overall objective is to build a strong financial incentive for sustainable forest management and to increase incomes for the forest communities.
With support from the forest conservation campaign Size of Wales we are:
- training women and men in low-cost, profitable beekeeping
- establishing tree nurseries
- making firebreaks to protect forest-located apiaries and nearby forest
