Coverage of the launch ceremony for the Cameroon Outgrower Programme by Cameroon Radio Television (CRTV).
The Cameroon Outgrower Programme is officially underway. The 15-year planting programme will see 13,000 landowners equipped with the education and financing to develop multi-crop farms around a core crop of rubber. 27,000 hectares of degraded land or low yielding farms will be re-planted and sustainably farmed to produce 100% traceable, high quality rubber and liquid latex.
Developed to address several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the programme will create impact both environmentally through the development of rubber farms which are high sequesters of carbon, and socially, by promoting sustainable development through creating wealth for rural communities.
