Cameroon Case Study

The case study is located in the Tri-National de la Sangha (TNS) landscape, which consists of three national parks: Lobéké (Cameroon), Nouabalé-Ndoki (ROC) and Dzanga- Ndoki (CAR), covering 4,520,000 ha in total. The TNS landscape spans over four districts (“Préfectures” or “Départements”) located in three countries: Cameroon, Central African Republic, and Republic of Congo (see Figure 1). The areas surrounding the national parks, around 3,751,800 ha in total, have multiple uses with zones for logging concessions, community use and professional hunting (Usongo and Nzooh 2008).
