The Pilot phase

The first C2D financed the first phase of the ACEFA Programme (2008-2012).

Approaches and methods were developed from previous experiences of providing support to professional agro-pastoral organisations, extension and counselling to family farm enterprises


These actions were implemented in 10 divisions of the 5 pilot regions including the Adamaoua, North, West, South-West, and South selected in keeping with criteria offering the most favourable terms and allowing for maximum impact on the population, namely:

  • the agro ecological partitioning of Cameroon which required that at least one region should be represented in each zone;
  • the dynamism of the farmer groups and sub-sectors retained in the PRSP;
  • the availability of State human resources;
  • the presence of banking structures;
  • opening of markets
