SNV has been in Cameroon since 1963. We started as a volunteer service, then as an agency executing projects and since 2003, we play the role of an independent advisory and support organisation. Our work focuses on:
- Improving the number of poor people that have access to sufficient quantities of safe drinking water in rural and semi-urban areas,
- Improving health and standard of living, family finances and environmental protection for rural and peri-urban households with an emphasis on women and children, through increased access to domestic biogas and other forms of renewable energy,
- Improving pastoralists’ participation in processes aimed at increasing their sustainable and equitable access to pastoral resources (land and natural resources),
- Enhancing the economic inclusion of the poor in forest value chains of Timber and Non Timber Forest Products through the promotion of community forestry.
