Never before has Cameroon, once renowned for its stability, experienced such destructive conflict.
In the five years of armed battle in the Anglophone regions of the north-west and south-west, the damage to infrastructure and buildings is extensive.
In 2019, the government reported that at least:
- 350 schools,
- 115 health centres,
- 40 bridges,
- 400 water points,
- 500 kilometres of low-voltage power lines,
- 45 markets,
- nearly 12,000 houses
- and 100,000 hectares of plantations had to be rebuilt.
