Agro-pastoral farming alliance in Cameroon

The existing legal framework empowers the Agro Pastoral Commission to resolve conflicts between farmers and grazers; however, the process is expensive, cumbersome and ineffective. MBOSCUDA introduced an Alternative Conflict Management (ACM) procedure through which farming and pastoralist communities use Dialogue Platforms (DPs) to negotiate farming alliance agreements. Farming alliance has strengthened farmer-pastoralists relations and encouraged natural ecosystem management.
