CAMEROON: Stop Overgrazing in Mbengwi

CAMEROON: Stop Overgrazing in Mbengwi

They should respect the law on allocating Agro-pastoral permits. The Laws are not respected in such away that permits to graze are now brandished by people grazing on crops in farms.The cows now graze right inside wetlands, polluting water, transforming once fertile soils into deserts.

Why is this important?

This would improve on the food situation as water catchments which are drying up will come back supplying the much needed water for agriculture. Food security would be guaranteed and social conflicts which are on the rise in Mbengwi, North West Cameroon would be checked.

Reasons for signing

  • My grandmother looks so lean. She told me she is dying because of cattle.
  • My daughter has to return to her father's birth place from time to time. But it would seem in a few years, if nothing is done, she would meet nobody in her father's village as the cattle would have chased everybody away.
  • La destruction des plantations pas les bouefs est incroyable. Conjuguons nos efforts pour mettre fins a ce probleme.
