With the support of PDTIE, an ACP Innovation Fund project, the ‘École régionale post-universitaire d’aménagement et de gestion intégrés des forêts et territoires tropicaux (ERAIFT)’ and the ‘Ecole de Faune de Garoua (EFG)’ have been carrying out a study since 2022 on the state of local and indigenous knowledge on sustainable development in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and its use, taking into account gender-specific issues.
The aim of this study is to document, capitalize on and popularize the knowledge and know-how of local communities and indigenous peoples in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the fields of agroecology, ecosystem conservation and restoration, health, life, sustainable energy use, sustainable natural resource management and environmental quality, with a view to promoting them in sustainable development activities.
In order to disseminate the endogenous knowledge of local communities and indigenous peoples to the general public, while taking into account gender specificities, ERAIFT and EFG are publishing the first three posters on:
- ‘L’agriculture durable fondée sur les savoirs endogènes en zone soudano-sahélienne’ in Cameroon,
- ‘L’implication des femmes dans l’utilisation des savoirs endogènes dans les Grassfield’, in west Cameroon
- ‘Les savoirs endogènes des peuples autochtones Baka’, Sustainable development issues around the Dja reserve, Cameroon.
