Cameroon

Cameroon
Western & Central Africa
Cameroon, a geographically diverse country in Central Africa, with a humid tropical climate in the South, expands from the Gulf of Guinea northward into a Sahelian climate that is increasingly arid. Cameroon faces significant natural disaster risks ranging from toxic gas emissions from its Lakes Monoun and Nyos and volcanic eruptions of Mount Cameroon to annual floods and landslides. The country's dependency on agriculture amplifies its vulnerability to climate change, particularly affecting rural areas. Challenges are further intensified by regional violence and displacement, complicating disaster response and resilience.
In May 2019, the Government requested CADRI support to conduct an assessment of the country‚Äôs disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation gaps and capacities. Engagement in Cameroon was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CADRI Partnership initiated a scoping mission in November 2022 with team members from FAO, IOM, and UNDP to adapt the CADRI capacity diagnosis methodology to Cameroon's unique context. A capacity diagnosis scheduled for May 2023 was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Discussions on rescheduling the capacity diagnosis mission in 2024 are ongoing.
