Centre de Ressources en Agroforesterie de Riba (Riba Agroforestry Resource Centre)
Cameroon
 

Centre de Ressources en Agroforesterie de Riba (Riba Agroforestry Resource Centre) is a community-based organization working in mountainous northwest Cameroon, close to Kilum-Ijim Mountain Forest. The Centre promotes sustainable tree-based farming to rehabilitate watersheds and degraded land and generate income for the local community. A rural resource centre provides training in agroforestry and nursery management, watershed protection, beekeeping, microfinance, and marketing of tree seedlings and farm produce. The initiative's tree-based farming system has successfully stemmed deforestation and improved soil fertility, while sales from tree and honey nurseries are supporting sustainable livelihoods. The initiative is guided by a self-help ethos, which has served to empower members of the community, promote gender equity, and instill a belief in the community's collective capacity to achieve positive change and a sustainable future.
