Opportunities and approaches to supporting: community forest enterprises - proceedings of the first CoNGOs learning event, Kribi, Cameroon (18-20 July 2017)

The purpose of this three-day learning event was to explore the positive livelihood impacts that might be gained from ensuring community forest rights lead to enterprise opportunities. Participants were introduced to community forestry in Cameroon (the host), alongside four other Congo Basin countries. Insights were presented on approaches to community forest enterprise development (from four countries outside the Congo Basin). Knowledge and capacity gaps in the region on how to support such enterprises were discussed and solutions identified. Finally, successful examples of community forestry business incubation in Cameroon were showcased (including a field trip to mangrove forest enterprises). The final discussions identified what political or institutional change might be needed to upscale success.
