From Cameroon’s vast lowland forests come bush mango nuts and eru leaves. The savannah forests produce honey and beeswax, bamboos and gum Arabic. Known as non-timber forest products (NTFPs), these products are of biological origin and derived from natural, modified or managed forested landscapes and wooded land and trees outside forests. Verina Ingram examines and disentangles the ‘fine mess’ or arrangements governing these NTFPs and their value chains, investigating their impacts on the sustainability of the livelihoods of those involved.
