Original text on this topic:
A workshop at the AfRSG meeting recommended the development of a specific rhino project to develop a Government of Cameroon recovery plan through the President, with WWF/FAC as counterparts who could provide initial funding. Greatly increased government commitment was seen as essential for success. Short term recommendations include obtaining high level political support, the appointment of a high level steering committee and recruitment of additional anti-poaching staff, the establishment of 2 portection zones, increased intelligence gathering, and continued monitoring. Much will depend on necessary changes within the government ministry (MINEFF) to allow effective anti-poaching efforts, and on continued support from the existing GEF savannah project.
