Located at the crossroads of Western and Central Africa and home to dozens of ethnic groups and distinct biomes, Cameroon historically maintained political and social stability. However, peace broke down recently when political tensions between the English-speaking North and French-speaking South flared. 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.
