Organic Agriculture for Food Security and Wealth Creation by Providing Sustainable Livelihoods
Poverty and unemployment greatly plagues Africa and Cameroon in particular. Cameroon’s most recent household survey (ECAM III), undertaken in 2007, revealed that poverty affected an estimated 39.9% of the population, compared with 40.2% in 2001, and that 55% of the country’s poor people live in rural areas. The ECAM III survey also found that poverty had grown by 3 points in rural areas and poverty continues to be a fundamental rural phenomenon. Women and children are particularly hard-hit: 52% of people in poor households are women, and half the members of poor households are under 15 years of age.
