“(Business in Cameroon) - Adapt’Action,” the scheme developed by France at the end of the COP21 climate conference in December 2015, has just been launched in Cameroon to help deal with climate change.

For the implementation of that scheme, Cameroon’s environment minister Pierre Hele, French ambassador Gilles Thibault and director of the French Agency for Development in Cameroon, signed a memorandum of understanding on June 10, 2019, in Yaoundé.

According to Benoît Lebeurre, “Adapt’Action” was developed by the French Agency for Development to support vulnerable countries in the implementation of their climate change adaptation policies. With a budget of about XAF20 billion, “Adapt’Action” will provide a 4-year technical assistance and capacity enhancement.

This year, Cameroon will also benefit from these supports Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana have been enjoying. Indeed, climate variations like drought and flood are affecting those countries’ economy, ecosystem and population.
