Status COMPLETED
Executing agency
TRAFFIC INTERNATIONAL
Summary The project concerns strengthening the national process for controlling illegal logging and associated trade in Cameroon in order to contribute to transparency of timber trade in Cameroon with a view to address the problems of unsustainable timber harvesting, weak forest law enforcement and illegal trade of the country’s timber. The outputs that will be achieved are (1) Implementation capacity of FLE of MINFOF and enforcement services strengthened; (2) Coordination of relevant government services for forest law enforcement strengthened; (3) Transparency of timber legality systems in Cameroon improved. Among other things, after two years of its implementation the project will allow: (1) the government to make sure that all actors concerned in the timber sector are complying with their fiscal obligations and timber royalties and taxes are paid as required by the forest law, and to consequently receive all the tax income from timber harvesting and export; (2) the sawmilling companies to apply a system to identify and segregate timber according to its source and documentation and records of purchased and sold timber are available; (3) the logging companies to respect forest laws and regulations relating to timber harvesting and transportation, and the rights of forest communities; (4) the forest communities to get their share of tax revenue from the harvested timber; (5) to improve the image of Cameroon’s timbers on the international market to enhance the country’s credibility (6) to set-up the coordination of government services in order to help to make sure that these results will be durable.
