Exploitation of Moabi in the humid dense forests of Cameroon. Harmonization and improvement of two conflicting ways of exploitation of the same forest resource


Exploitation of Moabi in the humid dense forests of Cameroon. Harmonization and improvement of two conflicting ways of exploitation of the same forest resource



BOS Nieuwsletter 14 (2)(31): 20-32



This article describes how the moabi tree (Baillonella toxisperma) is used by the population in East Cameroon and how the wood is exploited by logging companies. The interests of the local population (Baka and Bantu) and the logging companies are evaluated. For many generations the edible oil ('huile de karite') has been an important non-timber forest product (NTFP) for the local population, along with the kernels of the bush mango (Irvingia gabonensis), bush meat and many other NTFP.
