Located at the crossroads of Western and Central Africa and home to dozens of ethnic groups and distinct biomes, Cameroon has remarkably maintained political and social stability in an otherwise tumultuous region. However, more than 40% of Cameroon lives below the poverty line, and its rural population -- comprising 70% of inhabitants -- depends on agriculture to survive (UNDP). Much of the country suffers from poor soil quality, limited rainfall, and low crop production and the past six years have brought droughts, floods, crop failures, and an enormous influx of refugees from neighboring countries. Food insecurity and malnutrition have reached critical levels and frequent climate shocks have left the population trapped in a vicious cycle of hunger and poverty. Sustainable food production, healthcare and access to education remain Cameroon’s more pressing challenges.
