About Eric Suika Fonba

Eric started development work in 1998 with the Centre for promotion of Conservation agriculture (CEPROCA) in Cameroon where he gained valuable skills facilitating change in rural communities. His interest later widened to environmental protection when he became a friend of Limbe Botanic Garden (LBG) in Cameroon. As friend of LBG he gained knowledge on the domestication and conservation of non wood forest products. He has been putting into practice this knowledge in part of his 14 ha land in his native home village of Ngomrin in North West Cameroon. His aspiration is to convert this land into an ecotourism and learning site where local people can learn hands on how to practice analog forestry. After attending a series of training courses on analog forestry in Cameroon he was later trained as an accredited Analog Forestry trainer in Sri Lanka in 2014.
