Environmental Protection in Cameroon
Better Future for Change Cameroon is a small, but growing NGO in Douala that works towards environmental protection, water, education and Social Development. It was founded in 2013 by a group Cameroonian and a few foreign partners who felt concerned about the level of environmental and social degradation and lack of interest and awareness on environmental and social issues that prevailed at the level of the population of Cameroon.
Better Future for Change Cameroon was founded with a mission to conserve Cameroon’s rich biodiversity by working on practical solutions to solve nature conservation problems. We pay close attention to sustainable development, rural community livelihood and contemporary environmental issues.
This NGO in Douala was formed with a strong commitment to fighting for environmental protection in our communities on issues like deforestation, desertification, unsustainable farming practices, improper waste management and waste disposal methods, water scarcity, health problems linked to sanitation and general lukewarm attitude towards environment and nature conservation issues. Better Future for Change helps local community members to live better lives by improving on living standards alongside making scarce resources available for posterity.

Together Fighting Environmental Problems
Better Future for Change Cameroon is run by a five person Board of Directors, most of whom are currently in and out of the country, as leaders in business and political and others for permanently outside Cameroon. Nevertheless, they are still all supporting the work that is currently being done by those who stayed behind and our volunteers.
We work on promoting the exchange of good practices including indigenous practices used to address drought, desertification, floods and erosion. we are also interested in promoting initiatives for sustainable use and management of forest and other land resources with the involvement of local communities.
