ECoDAs is a registered grassroots non-profit organization that works for the conservation of biodiversity, promoting and advocating for eco-friendly and sustainable livelihood models in Cameroon.  ECoDAs’ key areas of interventions are sustainable agriculture, biodiversity conservation, environmental education, natural resource management and governance. We collaborate with communities to address issues such as deforestation, poaching, food insecurity, poverty, and impacts of climate change in order to promote sustainable development. ECoDAs works with rural resource dependent poor communities, particularly those living adjacent protected areas, remnant forests, and degraded forest lands.  

Our Approach


Community Outreach & Awareness Raising

Raising awareness among the population on topics such as environmental conservation and climate change is one of the most important ways to create understanding and to change behavior in the long term. Only if communities are aware of environmental issues, and understand causes and effects and their own role can we initiate lasting improvements..

Community Environmental Improvement 

Cameroon’s unique nature and wildlife are under threat from economic activities, illegal activities such as logging and land encroachment, as well as the effects of climate change. ECoDAs strives to protect forests and their ecosystems. In order to create effective and lasting change, we work closely with target communities in the protected areas to empower them to protect and restore their forests.

Community Sustainable Livelihood Improvement

ECoDAs works closely with communities in order to support them to improve their livelihoods. People in remote villages often lack basic infrastructure, access to information, and skills to improve their own situation. Our projects enable communities to improve their livelihoods and to increase their resilience to the effects of climate change.

Community Engagement & Empowerment

Empowering local communities to be forest guardians through conservation education, training, and capacity building.  ECoDAs also collaborates with communities and the government to develop conservation plans that protect endangered species and their habitat and benefit local people.

 


A healthy environment starts from an individual and can only be achieved with the participation of all. 

Together we can make our communities better Partner with us to start making the difference today.
