Activities of the UNVDA:

Activities aimed at ensuring sustainable management of natural resources:

Sensitization on sustainable land use systems: In order to halt environmental degradation caused by crop production and grazing activities in the area, we organize sensitization and concertation forums on sustainable harnessing and preservation of land resources.

 

Pasture improvement: This activity aims at reducing the conflicts that occur between crop producers and graziers who come into the area on trans-humance every year. We are presently sourcing for funding for this activity, which will also include the construction of cattle drinking points and the training of graziers on improved pasture management.

Afforestation/reforestation: This activity is an attempt by UNVDA to reverse the effects of deforestation caused during the development of paddy fields and other infrastructure in the area (such as the Bamendjim dam).
