Food is seen as a basic human right and yet one in nine people globally experience chronic hunger which is very sad and also alarming for the future of our world and thus needs to be resolved. Some food is derived directly from plants and animals are also used as food sources that are picked up by feeding food from plants. Millions of people continue to suffer from health consequences of malnutrition which damages growing bodies and brains. Although progress has been made towards a better world, too many people have been left behind.
Green Cameroon has as it mission to protect the environment, and looking at environmental impacts of food. Food therefore lies at the heart of trying to tackle climate change, reducing water stress, pollution, restoring lands to forests or grasslands and protecting the world wildlife.
