It was at the end of the Rio de Janeiro Summit of June 1992 that forestry legislation has undergone a real revolution in Cameroon. So, much innovation has been made thanks to the promulgation of Law n°94-01 of 20 January 1994 to lay down Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries Regulations. Some of these innovations are the following: the creation of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the creation of forest of council and community forests. Since sustainable development is a major concern to the Cameroon Government, the State has opted for the decentralization of forestry management.
