The revised FSC National Forest Stewardship Standard (NFSS) of Cameroon applies to all forest types, small and low-intensity management units and community forests.

The revision process of the NFSS of Cameroon started in 2015 and focused mainly on:

  1. the adaptation to version 5 of the FSC Principles and Criteria;
  2. the inclusion of indicators related to intact forest landscapes, wood tracking and other important issues.

A chamber-balanced standard development group conducted the revision of the NFSS. The revision followed a multi-stakeholder process, including virtual public consultations and a face-to-face consultation workshop. Field testing and stakeholder involvement ensured the applicability/ auditability of the revised NFSS.

The revised NFSS of Cameroon (English and French versions) can be consulted in the FSC Document Center. For more related news, please visit the FSC Africa newsroom.
