Project Objectives

The project aims to contribute to improving the quality of life and public health in the West Cameroon region by facilitating access to drinking water and renewable energy.

To achieve this important and ambitious goal, we aim to enhance the skills in natural resource management and increase the use of appropriate technologies in 20 pilot villages selected among the municipalities of Batcham, Dschang and Foumbot, creating a virtuous territorial dynamic that involve sectoral enterprises, universities, municipal administrations and decentralized technical services, civil society organizations, traditional authorities and local communities in Cameroon and Italy, diaspora.

The initiative therefore develops around three main axes, closely linked to each other: 1. Training; 2. Adduction of drinking water and use of renewable energy; 3. Local governance. These 3 components are designed in an organic and synergistic way, through a vertical integration of the whole process, with a view to ensuring the sustainability of the intervention from a social, financial, institutional, environmental and technical point of view.

Coopermondo will deal with the strengthening of associations and community animation.
