1. Cameroon has an estimated population of 22.8 million (2014) and the annual population growth rate is 2.7, with 41 percent of the population under 15 years old.

Cameroon’s average Growth Domestic Product (GDP) growth in real terms has stood between 3.3 (2010) and 5.9 percent (2014) over the last five years, with GDP per capita per year (Purchasing Power Parity (PPP)) estimated at US$2,400 in 2013. Cameroon is a lower middle income country, but poverty levels are high and social indicators remain low. It was ranked 153rd out of the 188 countries tracked in the 2014 Human Development Index (HDI) and is one of a group of countries whose HDI scores have deteriorated in the past two decades.

2. Despite great development potential (significant natural resources, a relatively educated work force and a capable bureaucracy), Cameroon’s economic growth is lagging behind its potential and has not had a lasting impact on poverty. Cameroon is endowed with significant natural resources, including oil, high value timber species and agricultural products (coffee, cotton, cocoa). Poor infrastructure, an unfavorable business environment, and weak governance hamper economic activity and make it difficult to reach the growth rates needed to reduce poverty in a sustainable manner. After a significant decrease in poverty rates in the 1990s, the poverty rate has barely shifted between 2000 and 2007. Since 2001, it is estimated that around 40 percent of the population lives below the poverty line and chronic poverty stands at about 26 percent. In 2014, poverty incidence was 38 percent (using the national poverty line). These averages are high compared to other countries in the region with similar economic characteristics.

3. Moreover, there are significant regional disparities in poverty and depths of poverty in Cameroon; poverty is predominant in rural areas and in the northern regions of the country. Existing data also highlight strong socioeconomic disparities and show that over time poverty has decreased in urban areas while continuing to increase in rural areas. The latest household survey in 2014 finds that 56.8 percent of rural families are poor, compared to

8.9 percent of urban families. Approximately 87 percent of the poor live in rural areas; the

poor – in terms of numbers and level of poverty - are concentrated in the three northern regions:

Far North, North, and Adamawa. Fifty six percent of all poor are found in the Far North and North regions, this reflects a rapid increase (in 2001, it was 34 percent). Changes in poverty between 2001 and 2014 show an unambiguous regional pattern, with northern Cameroon becoming poorer and southern Cameroon becoming better-off. Poverty declined continuously in the center-west of the country, in the Littoral, Center, West and South-West regions, as well as in Douala and Yaoundé. By contrast, poverty continuously rose in the North and Far North regions. The regions of Adamawa, North-West and South are characterized by stagnation while the East region initially experienced an increase in poverty followed by a sharp decline.
