Lessons from Cameroon: Forestry Impact Monitoring
Since 2001 the Government of Cameroon has embarked on a National Forest and Environment Sector Program (Programme Sectoriel Forêt et Environnement - PSFE) with the objective of guaranteeing the long-term sustainability of the economic, ecological and social functions of the forest ecosystems. The German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) supports the Government of Cameroon in the implementation of the PSFE through its own program called ProPSFE (Programme d'appui au PSFE). As part of its support, the GTZ has financed the creation of an impact monitoring system. This system, started in 2005, is based on a Online Indicator Database of 33 indicators (in the categories "natural resources", "good governance" and "poverty alleviation") as well as an interactive Online Atlas and an Online Library. Today it is one of the fully operational impact monitoring systems in Central Africa.
