Cameroon - Competitive Value Chains Project : environment assessment (Vol. 5) : Etude d'impact environnemental et social de project d'amenagement ecotouristique du parc national de Campo-Ma'an (French)

The objective of the Competitive Value Chains Project of Cameroon is to contribute to increased competitiveness of the economy through development of high potential value chains and improvements in the investment climate. This is expected to lead to an increase in productive private investments and exports contributing to growth in income and employment. In order to highlight the environmental and social problems that could arise from the CVCP, the ESMF has identified the positive and negative impacts of the Sustainable Transformation of Wood and Ecotourism components. Each of these is likely to affect the environment and will be considered in the infrastructure rehabilitation and construction work, which will surely result in impacts, even if minor; the works may also affect the physical and human environment. The project is thus expected to have site-specific, limited, and mostly mitigated impacts on the environment The Negative impacts could be broadly on: (i) Soil, surface water and groundwater pollution risks due to the industrial waste accumulation from the clusters, hosting infrastructure, and textiles park, (ii) loss of vegetation and landscape transformation following the installation of infrastructure (clusters, facilities, various works). This will enhance the risks of destroying the threatened species habitat and the ecologically fragile areas; (iii) the risk of disturbance to wildlife by noise during works and by the influx of tourists; and, (iv) the risk of degradation of sacred forests by wood harvesting. The Positive impacts would generally be: (i) possible reduction of pollution resulting from industrial waste recovery activity (e.g. wood coal, plywood construction) following the manufacture of various products; (ii) maintenance of biodiversity (e.g. wildlife, including elephants, lions, bush pig, etc.) within protected areas; (iii) the opportunity for biodiversity conservation with the creation of conservation areas that are important for tourism development.
