Report 2022

Cameroon, Party to the CBD, has always joined the international community to celebrate the International Day of Biodiversity (IDB). The celebration of this day calls on everyone to take action to reverse the growing trend of biodiversity loss, a challenge that must be met in accordance with the country's development vision defined in its National Development Strategy 2020-2030. Aware of its role as a custodian of biodiversity and in recognition of the cardinal role of biodiversity as an answer to several sustainable development challenges, ecosystem-based approach to address climate change, health issues, food and water security, and sustainable livelihoods, and that biodiversity is the foundation on which we can build back better, the Ministry of Environment, Protection of Nature and Sustainable Development, under the auspices of His Excellency Mr. HELE Pierre, organized a series of activities to commemorate this year’s celebration.

These activities carried out between the 16th-30th May 2022, included awareness-raising through inter-school environmental club competitions (using quizzes, poems, rhymes, and paintings), a high-level webinar on the presentation of the main findings from Cameroon’s NBESA, an exhibition of biodiversity-related activities carried out by various technical and financial partners within the national territory and a gastronomic exhibition by women groups from the different regions of Cameroon.

The celebration brought together key partner sector ministries and stakeholders working on biodiversity, as well as representatives from key development and productive sectors, research institutions, NGOs, CSOs, IPLCs, youths, women, students, media and technical and financial partner organizations.
