Sustainable Agriculture and Building the Capacity of Peasants: Income Generating Activities and Better Food Security
The ERD team is very pleased to share its report on the beekeeping activities for the period 2016-2017, in Cameroon. Beekeeping is an important sector of the economy in general and agricultural in particular due to the role played by bees in pollination and in the production of honey and its derived products. People around the world know and love honey, a high-value food and a source of income. But then beekeeping has remained out of the great momentum of agricultural development in Cameroon since a long time unlike other animal and even vegetable sectors.
Several development projects have undertaken actions to intensify this sector because it is a remunerative activity that can improve the living conditions of farmers. It is also a practice that depends largely on the use of natural resources, the good management and preservation of which are important factors to take into account for the economic development of the rural world and, therefore, contributes to the fight against poverty.
In order to fight against poaching and the establishment of alternative development activities, the ERD organization initiated and realized the project to modernize beekeeping in the Central and Eastern Cameroon region (part north of the Dja Biosphere Reserve).
