The Mpem and Djim National Park in Cameroon is a 97,000ha protected area home to the Nigeria-Cameroon Chimpanzee and other keystone wildlife species. It was created in 2004 and recently validated its management plan in July 2022. The Integrated Management and Evaluation Tool (IMET) was used to evaluate the park’s management efforts and a baseline was collected in 2020. A four-day evaluation workshop was held in 2022 with the support of OFAC and BIOPAMA, bringing together technical assistants, local CSOs, and community members. The evaluation was successful due to the presence and support of the Technical Assistant funded by the Nachtigal Hydro Power Company, who has been in place since July 2019. ECODEV and Sekakoh are also involved in protecting the park.
