"Environmental Laws and Litigation" at Parliamentary Flats Hotel
Magistrates from the Legal Department were divided into groups during our first 2 days workshop on “Environmental Laws and Litigation” at Parliamentary Flats Hotel, sharing experiences, ideas and suggestions on the challenges of environmental litigation in Cameroon and the way forward to a healthy environment.
Participants were presented with certificates of participation by the representative of the Minister of Justice and Keeper of the Seal, Executive Director of FEDEV and the representative of Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW).
We do a lot of public-interest environmental litigation on behalf of ordinary people as well as communities. These are those who otherwise will be denied justice either because they lack knowledge or simply can't bear the costs involved. We also carry out a lot of education to empower women to be able to participate in decision making in their communities- Barr Nchunu Justice Sama, CEO FEDEV.
