Cameroon, the new AROE Manual released: an important step towards FLEGT licensing

This Manual was produced by the Centre de Recherche et d’Action pour le Développement Durable in the context of a project funded by the FAO FLEGT Programme in Cameroon.

External Independent Monitoring in Cameroon by FODER

The Manual is intended for government officials (MINEPDED) involved with the authorization process of the “Certification of Compliance with Environmental Obligations” – in French Attestation de Respect des Obligations Environnementales (AROE) - required under the Country’s Legality Assurance System of the VPA.

This practical and functional document stands as a concrete step towards the implementation of VPA in Cameroon.

The Manual is available in French here.
