TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE, TECHNOLOGIES AND PRACTICE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION: A CASE STUDY OF COMMUNITY COMPOSTING IN CAMEROON

Lawrence Oben Mbeng.

Abstract
Using participant observation and appraisal methods, the present study shows that with traditional knowledge, technologies and practices, a significant quantity of household waste was diverted away from the landfill and transformed into organic compost for use by farmers with the possibility of improving existing carbon sinks and reducing net CO2 emissions.

Key words: composting; traditional technologies, practices and knowledge; climate change mitigation
