Cameroon is considered as the ‘Food basket’ of Central Africa because of her large yields and harvest. she is capable of subsidizing neighbouring countries with all kind of food crops. Economically, Cameroon depends heavily on agriculture for its livelihood and as a result there exist innovation agricultural laws that govern this sector of the economy.
In the late 1980s,after a drastic decline of the price of the perennial crop products (such as cocoa, coffee, oil palm, rubber banana, etc) at the international market, allowed by the devaluation of the local currency CFA, the government of Cameroon redefined its development priorities to include sustainable agriculture and the protection of natural resources.
