Cameroon Country Situation Report on HHPs
Aligned to the IPEN Strategy to phase out HHPs in Africa, this report by the Centre de Recherche et d'Education pour le Développement documents the list of HHPs registered and being used in Cameroon using Pesticide Action Network’s HHPs criteria, in addition to the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) – World Health Organization (WHO) criteria in the definition and identification of HHPs; the list of pesticides homologated for importation and use in Cameroon; and the pesticide registration process. It also highlights cases of health and environmental impacts by HHPs, and flags existing opportunities to phase-out or ban HHPs and promote agroecology in Cameroon.
This report relates to Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
Special thanks to IPEN's Francophone Africa Regional Coordinator Achille Ngakeng for his important contributions to the development and finalization of the project.
