INFO: The creation on December 8, 2004 by decree N ° 2004/320, of the Ministry of the Environment, the Protection of the Nature and the Sustainable Development (MINEPDED) is related to the desire of the Cameroonian Government to work effectively with the protection of populations through a healthy environment. To do this, this department is responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of environmental policy and nature protection in Cameroon.


MINEPDED works with several organizations and institutions such as the Foundation for the Environment and Development in Cameroon (FEDEC) that accompany it in the implementation of its action plan. As a result, he coordinates and monitors FEDEC’s activities as an actor involved in environmental protection and sustainable development.

MINEPDED has been involved in the operation of FEDEC since its creation, which is what justifies its presence in its Board of Directors through the member representing it.
