The banana production in Cameroon is currently dominated by three groups of producers, two of them are private and one is a private-public group. The interests of the banana value chain in front of the Cameroonian and European authorities are defended by the Banana Association of Cameroon (“ASSOBACAM” in French).

The specific objective of this contract was to provide high-level expertise to all stakeholders of the value chain for a consistent implementation of the BAM conventions in order to contribute to the overall objective of competitiveness and economic, social and environmental sustainability.

The technical assistant mobilised by Prospect C&S has played an essential role in:

  • Analysing and providing advice for a better competitiveness of the banana value chain in Cameroon;
  • Providing assistance for the efficient implementation of the BAM instrument;
  • Improving the capacity of the ASSOBACAM and the exporters in the preparation and management of BAM proposals, contracts and grants in accordance with EU procedures;
  • Strengthening the monitoring of the sector by the ASSOBACAM itself.
