The community depends on water wells. Water scarcity has been a huge problem.

Rewilding the five water catchments in town will solve a long-standing deficit.

The Bonduma water catchment in the rainy season, supplies water to University of Buea Campus, Wokoko, Bokoko and Molyko neighbourhoods.

The catchment has been encroached on by farming activities that hurt quality and reduce quantity. In the dry season, it’s just a pool of standing water.

“We call it the Cater Bean locally. It is a very fast growing tree; Right now, most of them stand 3 meters or above. The seeds produce an oil that’s very important culturally and can be used in traditional medicines.”
