Sustainable agriculture and the conservation of habitats essential for the effective management of biologicaldiversity and protected areas in western Cameroon is the Cameroon Biodiversity Conservation and Development Project supported by the United Nations Program 'environment (UNEP) and the Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED)

The degradation of natural ecosystems in the target sites where indigenous people and other local communities live is becoming increasingly noticeable due to their continued dependence on biological resources for subsistence. In the past, many short-term conservation projects have influenced the SUFACHAC project site, before they reach their stated objectives (such as the publication and long-term management of the proposed PAs), and do not leave behind them improvements. Subsistence initiatives that will be sustained in the absence of an ongoing grant.
The SUFACHAC project makes explicit reference to the 9th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) which asked all parties to ensure that PAs contribute to poverty eradication, sustainable development and Revised Biodiversity Strategic Plan 2011-2020 including the Aichi targets which were adopted at the 10th COP, and Decision No. UNEP / CBD / COP / DEC / XI / 3 of 05 December 2012 adopted at the 11th COP on monitoring progress in implementing the 2011-2020 Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
The overall objective of SUFACHAC is to support progress towards many Aichi targets and indicators. More specifically, it aims to:
• Address the underlying causes of biodiversity loss by mainstreaming biodiversity across government and society;
• Reduce direct pressures on biodiversity and promote sustainable use; and
• Improve the state of biodiversity by safeguarding ecosystems, species and genetic diversity, which fall under the objectives.
The fundamental role of the management of SUFACHAC is to ensure the effective participation of stakeholders, especially around protected areas.
The project aims to provide socio-economic benefits to those directly affected by the establishment and management of protected areas in the project area, for example
• By giving priority to supporting those whose access to resources within PAs will be limited by proposed management interventions;
• Helping to identify and invest in alternative livelihood activities.
• Ensuring that the use of protected areas by women is also recognized;
• And when such uses should be restricted, they also have equal access to project support to ensure that they find at least viable alternatives;
• By trying to create a partnership between the project and the communities around the protected area, thus facilitating a collaborative management approach.

SUFACHAC seeks to adopt an integrated approach that can give equitable treatment to landscape functions such as response to climate change, biodiversity conservation, food security, poverty reduction and economic growth.

By 2020, poverty reduction and planning strategies are incorporated into national accounts as needed and reporting systems through “policy development that takes into account biodiversity and ecosystem services in assessment environmental and strategic impact ”.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to improving efficiency in the management of protected area systems, the integration of biodiversity conservation into the different land use options, including the agriculture, mining, forestry, production and promotion of an integrated approach to management at the landscape level, through the development and implementation of an interactive land use plan.
