Country Brief

Cameroon is a low GHG emitter but its ambitious development strategy of becoming an emerging economy by 2035 will result in a sharp increase in emissions.

Cameroon intends to reduce the carbon footprint of its development without slowing down its growth, by favoring mitigation options with high co-benefits ; strengthening the country's resilience to climate change; aligning its sector policies and strengthening its mechanism and implementation tools to facilitate the achievement of these objectives ; and mobilize all relevant means to this end: funding, technology transfer and capacity building.
