In Cameroon’s Far North, a champion traditional leader

A third-degree chief and community leader, Djaoro Goudiba Djima is a 64-year-old man. Despite the increased need for firewood, he has convinced and sensitized community members to protect and preserve the hills in the small village of Magouala in Kossewa in the Far North of Cameroon. Over the past 25 years their efforts have resulted in the regeneration of more than 20 ha of forest. The work of Djima and other champions are being supported by GIZ and WRI with the goal of restoring the larger Mogazang landscape.
