Our History

Community Agricultural and Environmental Protection Association (CAEPA) Cameroon was
founded by a group of women seeking to improve their agricultural production systems by
making them environment-friendly and sustainable especially. Later they realized the linkage
between natural resource rights, and climate and environmental justice. They also realized there
was a connection between land degradation, poverty, and violence against women and HIV and
AIDS. They included fighting against violence in the programs. CAEPA Cameroon was
created in 2009 and legalized in the year 2011 under Cameroon Law No. 90-53 of 19/12/90
related to Associations. Since 2009, its activities have expanded to address issues of natural
resource rights, climate and environmental justice, and their connection to land degradation,
poverty, and violence against women/girls and HIV and AIDS. CAEPA Cameroon is
headquartered in Bamenda, North-West Region of Cameroon. The organization is expanding its
programs to cover South West region-SWR (Fako, Meme, Manyu, Ndian) and North West
region-NWR (Momo, Mezam, Boyo, Ngoh-ketunjia) of Cameroon
