Encourage legality and transparency in wildlife trade from harvesting to exportation/consumption, through enhanced knowledge of legality definitions and wildlife trade laws and legal frameworks to ensure compliance

Promote participatory engagement in biodiversity conservation by stakeholders, especially local communities, at all levels, from field work to decision making through capacity development and support for alternative income generating activities to reduce pressure on forest and enhance wellbeing of communities that depend on forest for their livelihood.


Develop FEDA into a credible, evidence-based conservation association in Cameroon that is guided by sound values, by ensuring there are robust and operational systems in place, adequate number of competent staff to implement action, as well as the sustainable availability of basic resources to support its action plan.
