Women in the South West Region have appealed to the Government through the Ministry of Environment and Nature Protection to empower them to work with the Mayor and Councils in order to better manage the natural resources of the region.

This appeal was just one of the several proposals made by women in the Region in a two day workshop organized by the Ministry of the Environment and Nature Protection that took place at Azi Fiangeb Hotel Kumba from 17 to 18 November 2011. The workshop that held under the theme ‘talk on the sustainable management of natural resources for women in the South West Region’ was attended by women groups representatives and delegates of Environment and Nature Protection drawn from all the six Divisions in the South West Region. Also in attendance were the Regional Delegates of Environment and Nature Protection for the South West, Ebo’o Ebo’o Francis. The lead resource person for the workshop was a Yaounde based environmental consultant, Cyprian Ewongjug.

Epole Anna, who represented the Ngombo Women Association in Kupe Mannenguba in her group report on day one of the workshop, appealed to the government to empower women in the region to work with the Mayors, Councilors and Quarter heads to better manage the natural resources of the region arguing that women self embracing roles in the society better pits them to work with the Mayors, Councilors, Quarter heads and down to community.

In his closing remarks, the South West Delegate of Environment and Nature Protection, appealed to the workshop participants to invest the knowledge gained in the workshop in their various communities adding that knowledge is never treasured until put into use
