The Nlende Dibè and Eboundja I villages are both found in the Ocean Division, South Region, Cameroon. Their inhabitants mainly rely on fishing and agriculture for food security and income. Unfortunately, these coastal communities face increasing pressure on the land and its resources, and are exposed to risks affecting their access to both fisheries and land resources. This briefing note for the media provides an overview of these risks and the main recommendations from civil society to address them, as well as suggested topics to report on.
