Dear cesar bayu, good work out there! Courage!

Hello Stephen Bright Sakwa, We at NDEF Cameroon have read with interest your idea. Agroforestry is really a great way to empower people while mitigating environmental problems. We are suggesting if you could complement agroforestry practices to deliver a package encompassing food crops, tree crops and small livestock and aquaponics with man at the centre of it all. A juxtaposition of these components would lead to symbiotic relationships with mutual benefits. Food crops would provide short term benefits; small ruminants would provide benefits in the medium term while tree crops would provide benefits in the long term. Useful trees serve as the farmers’ insurance cover (pension).
On tree planting still, you could adopt vegetative propagation techniques such as grafting and air-layering to produce fruit tree seedlings which deliver fruits in two to three years after planting. In this way, young persons (who are often not patient enough to wait for a long time) will get results of endeavours sooner than later. Nkeng Pius (Executive Director)
