The working conditions in this state-owned plantation are very bad. Salaries are continuously dropping down, while the facilities and services the company is supposed to provide in its workers' camps, such as electricity, water or health care, are hardly ever delivered.Locations:Africa-CameroonDate:17 Feb, 2012Credit:© Jan-Joseph Stok / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Day-Deforestation-Factories-Forests (campaign title)-KWCI (GPI)-National parks-Oil palm (plants)-Outdoors-Palm oil (product)-PAMOL Plantations Limited-Plantations-Tropical rainforestsShoot:Small Scale Oil Palm Plantations in CameroonOil palm plantations in Cameroon cover a total of 60,000 ha, but in 2011 the government received applications for the opening of more than 1,000,000 ha of new plantations. As most of the land available currently is natural forest, oil palm expansion is becoming a major threat to Cameroon’s as well as the rest of Congo Basin's rainforest. The farmers in some villages in Cameroon don't believe in industrial scale palm oil production and have started to run small scale plantations with the objective of providing palm oil to local markets. More and more oil palm farmers avoid selling their oil palm fruits to PAMOL (the big state owned company in Mundemba) and prefer sell it to local artisanal mills.
