About the project

The project aimed at the parallel strengthening of the strategic pillars of local governance, economic recovery and social cohesion. This multidimensional and targeted response aimed to gradually restore citizens' confidence in the state by improving their participation in local governance, socio-economic recovery and reintegration, as well as strengthening conflict resolution and community mediation mechanisms. This has contributed to a coordinated and tangible improvement on various fronts in the quality of life of the targeted communities. This positive impact on the standard of living, quality of life and community interactions has supported the ongoing peace-building effort in the Far North region of Cameroon and this multidimensional approach has been accentuated by targeting interventions in localities with characteristics conducive to the establishment of sustainable stability with regard to specific indicators (stability index), seeking to create a phenomenon of emulation at the local and then regional levels; This, in order to propagate the concept of a recovered stability, essential for the socio-economic development of the region.
