Chinese Agro Industries at the Heart of Massive Deforestation and Land Grabbing in Cameroon

Author:

In Upper Sanaga, one of Cameroon's most underdeveloped divisions, Indigenous inhabitants have often ended up in poverty after being deprived of their primary means of subsistence farming and hunting, for the benefit of Shaanxi Farm, a Chinese agro industry farm.

With the help of CED and RELUFA, two nongovernmental organizations working in the Upper Sanaga division, this project aims to demonstrate how hundreds of hectares of land have been destroyed by Chinese agro industry to the detriment of the environment and the ecosystem.
