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
