La réalisation des objectifs de développement durable (ODD) exige des changements transformateurs collectifs de la part de tous les acteurs clés de la société. Les entreprises et, plus largement, le secteur privé peuvent contribuer largement à la réalisation des ODD, même si leur rôle spécifique n'est pas suffisamment mis en valeur dans le programme des ODD.

journal des africanistes

Le Journal de la Société des africanistes, devenu Journal des africanistes en 1976, est publié régulièrement depuis 1931, au rythme habituel de deux fascicules par an. On y trouve des articles de spécialistes (ethnologues, archéologues, préhistoriens, linguistes, etc.), des dossiers thématiques, des comptes rendus d’ouvrages et diverses informations scientifiques. Le Journal des africanistes constitue, de ce fait, un instrument de référence précieux pour les chercheurs et les documentalistes.

The Cameroonian Network of Human Rights Organizations (RECODH) is a legalized associative network, made up of associations and collectives of associations working for the promotion and protection of human rights and governance. Its members and supporters, scattered throughout the national territory, work for a single goal: the culture of human rights in Cameroon.

RECODH was born from a recommendation of the National Governance Program of the Republic of Cameroon for the period 2006-2010 which, in its component “Improvement of the participation of citizens and civil society in the management of public affairs”, planned an axis “Strengthening the capacities of human rights NGOs”, with the main activity of creating a coordination network of human rights NGOs. This recommendation was then implemented by the Commission on Human Rights and Freedoms (CNDHL) with the financial support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), which in this regard had consulted various human rights organizations , thus leading to the convocation of the constituent assembly on January 6, 2010.

RECODH is therefore the result of the convergence of a triple desire: that of public authorities, civil society and technical and financial partners (PTF).

RECODH now enjoys special consultative status with the United Nations.

Likewise, at the national level, the NGO Accreditation Commission of September 30, 2022 gave a favorable opinion for the accreditation of RECODH to NGO status. The Minister of Territorial Administration confirmed this status by Order No. 000126/A/MINAT/SG/DAP/SDLP/SONG/BA of December 27, 2022.
