From principles to practice: Indigenous peoples and protected areas in Africa - Case study 8: Cameroon – Campo Ma’an

The extent of Bagyeli Pygmy involvement in the development and Management Plan of the Campo Ma’an UTO.For the project Indigenous Peoples and Protected Areas in Africa, a case study was conducted in the Campo area of south-west Cameroon to assess its impact on Bagyeli Pygmies living in the area. The aim was to identify the extent of their involvement in the Development and Management Plan of the Campo Ma'an National Park (PMCM) based upon their stories of daily life in and around the park as well as to obtain their views on the management of the park that is such an integral part of their lives.

The study also gathered the views of those involved in the day-to-day running of the park (the extension field workers [animateurs], the 'ecoguards', the forest wardens etc.) in order to gain a better understanding of the way they approached their work. This reports provides an analysis of the different interviews conducted as well as of the documents consulted by the author, a representative of the non-governmental organisation (NGO), Planet Survey.
