The Planète Urgence delegation in Cameroon

Created in 2008, our national delegation in Cameroon is now based in Yaoundé, with an operational office in Douala. Cameroon is home to 10% of the forests in the Congo Basin, the 2nd largest expanse of tropical rainforest in the world. The national delegation, led by René Nouangang, has a staff of 6 and works with our local partners, in particular through the deployment of our volunteer schemes, but also within three projects co-conducted with our local partners, CAMERR in the west of the country, FARE in the north and MBIRR in the north-west.

Volunteering in Cameroon

Planète Urgence consolidates projects supported and implemented by local partners. The association’s action responds to the needs and supports the autonomy of its partners. Planète Urgence’s Cameroonian national delegation identifies the needs of its partners, which allows for a relationship based on proximity and trust.

To be effective, the missions are prepared in advance, supervised on site and evaluated when the volunteers return. The process of analysing and evaluating the quality and relevance of the assignments is carried out in real time, enabling us to capitalise on best practice and take into account areas for improvement if necessary.

Since 2000, more than 10,000 volunteers have left for all the countries where the association is active. Get involved in capacity building!
