The Kedjom-keku Community Forest Project
The Kedjom-Keku Community Forest Project is a 1000 hectares Afromontane forest in Kedjom-Keku Village that is being conserved as a business via a leasing agreement between the people of Kedjom-Keku and the Network for the Conservation of the Bamenda Highlands Forests comprising of The Greens, La Liberte Arts Group and Kedjom-Keku CASUD.
The project valorizes and protects the community's biodiversity and promotes its conservation as an ecotouristic, biodiversity research, and apicultural hotspot that create employment opportunities and generate revenue to promote the community's development.
Also known as the Misty Mountain Forest, the Kedjom-Keku Community Forest of Kedjom-Keku, a name that translates to the People of the Forest, is a source of drinking water for millions of people, a cultural sanctuary, a medicinal garden, and the natural habitat of the most threatened chimpanzee subspecies, the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee, as well as hundreds of other endemic and endangered species of the Bamenda Highlands of the North West Region of Cameroon.
