Cones are taken down the road to a truck for transportation. Workers are often forced to operate without even basic facilities such as running water or electricity. Employers often promise to provide things such as healthcare but it is not rare for those promises to never become a reality.Locations:Africa-CameroonDate:20 Feb, 2012Credit:© Jan-Joseph Stok / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3744px X 5616pxKeywords:Day-Deforestation-Forests (campaign title)-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Manual workers-Native Africans-Oil palm (plants)-One person-Outdoors-Palm oil (product)-PAMOL Plantations Limited-Tropical rainforests-WomenShoot: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.
