“My commitment to the fight against climate change comes from the need to continue reducing the vulnerability of the population especially the vulnerable groups (women, girls, youth) to the effects of climate change through intensifying awareness, developing training tools, training on good agroforestry practices and local measures to prevent and reduce the effects of natural disasters” – Valerie Tsama, Environment and Climate Change adaptation Expert
« Strengthening women’s knowledge on water, climate change/adaptation and gender at the central and local levels, has enabled and increased their participation and active involvement in processes related to the revision, elaboration and implementation of plans and projects within the water and climate sectors, moving women from mainly producers in the agricultural process to the frontlines of climate adaptation processes. » - Murielle Elouga Programme officer, WACDEP-G Cameroon.
“My commitment to report on climate and environmental issues stems from the need to address the excessive deforestation and exploitation of natural resources in Cameroon. I dream of a country where these practices are better controlled, and reforestation prioritized so rural and foorest communities can live in harmony with the environment.” - Vanissa Mafouokeng, Deputy Economic and Political Desk editor at Radio Tiemeni Siantou.
