This is a one-pager on SNV Niger pilot project on camel milk value chain development. This project high potential is thus based on the assumption that camel milk is a key product in terms of reducing the vulnerability of pastoralists and their families to food insecurity and of mitigating the adverse effects of climate change. It involves 10 women’s associations and will have at least 2,500 direct beneficiaries from 160 pastoralist households. The other indirect beneficiaries of the project include the women’s dairy associations (4 dairies), the value chain service providers (private veterinarians, animal feed traders, etc.).
This teaching guide outlines the tools that are recommended for use in the teaching of banana lessons in schools. These are the banana demonstration plot and calendar. The deliveries of banana lessons need to have a direct link with these two teaching resources so as to make them as practical and beneficial as possible.

The goal of the National Biogas Programme for Cameroon is to bring tangible and quantifiable improvements in the quality of life of rural households in Cameroon.
This report presents data about Cameroon related to a domestic biogas programme. The report contains 9 chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the country and the energy sector. Chapter two presents the biogas experience in Cameroon so far at institutional and domestic level. It also elaborates on the lessons learnt. Chapter 3 provides the key elements of a national biogas programme with its goal, objective, policy linkages and national biogas target. The fourth chapter elaborates on the institutional arrangement with a programme approach, advisory and implementation partners, and the roles and responsibilities at central and local levels. Chapter 5 describes the programme implementation activities with an annual programme framework, regional distribution of plants and Transitional Phase (year 1) programmes. Programme components and overall cost make up chapter 6. Salient features, activity and budget headings, source of funding, and income from GHG emission reductions are paragraph headers in this chapter. Chapter 7 presents the subsidy and credit arrangements with lessons learnt from other countries. Chapter 8 shows demonstration phase activities and outcomes with a focus on the design and approach, demonstration phase activities and lessons learnt and recommendations. The last chapter elaborates on the technology and the choice of the digester model. Different designs and models are presented with emphasis on the GGC 2074 model. The chapter ends with a description of the benefits of biogas use.
Water tower “forage Christine” enables dry season access to pastures in its influence area, where cattle come from stretches out into Mali and Niger with distances from 150 to 300km. In this area, pastoral livelihoods are jeopardized by (i) ongoing discussions about the institutional anchorage and vocation of the forage and its influence zone, (ii) organizational shortcomings of local authorities and management committees, (iii) dependency on external support for urgent troubleshooting and (iv) degradation of sylvo pastoral resources in the influence zone, due to non-adapted practices, recurrent droughts, agricultural encroachment, etc.
SNV (capacity building organisation) and CRUS (agro-pastoral organisation) initiated an action-research (2009-2010) to (i) secure the pastoral vocation of the resource base while improving the governance of the forage and (ii) conceive and test a multi sectorial, multi stakeholder and cross-border (inter-municipal, multi-country) intervention approach. Positive impact is expected at an estimated outreach of 3 000 pastoral households (20 000 men and women).
