De jeunes porteurs de projets et des groupes organisés autour des chaînes de valeur prioritaires, ont reçu le 03 juin 2021 à Bibémi, des équipements d'une valeur d'un peu plus de 26 millions de FCFA. Il s'agit d'un don du Gouvernement camerounais représenté par le MINEPAT, avec l'appui du Programme des Nations Unie pour le Développement.
This initiative is intended to contribute to reducing poverty and inequality by improving access to employment opportunities for young people and women, with a view to strengthening their economic resilience. More specifically, the IT equipment and rolling stock offered to the Council of Bibemi for the operationalisation of the Municipal Employment Office will contribute to greater employability of young people and women in this Council. The agricultural inputs given to stakeholders working in the maize sector, which has been identified as a growth sector, will help improve the income of the beneficiaries.
Finally, the material support provided to the youths with innovative projects will ensure their socio-economic integration and full participation in the development of the Council of Bibemi. The handing over of the equipment which will be extended to eight other municipalities in the Adamawa, East, Far-North and North Regions, at a total cost of more than CFAF 187.500 million, is a clear indication of the Government's commitment, supported by UNDP, to empowering the municipalities in the management of employment issues and to ensuring the economic and financial inclusion of all segments of the population at the local level.
It should be recalled that these interventions are the result of participatory consultations as well as the exploitation of the analytical study report and the development plan for potentially promising sectors in the Bibemi Council carried out in 2013 as part of the Sub-programme for Poverty Alleviation (SPPA) at grassroots level.
